Yes.  We don't want to create another sun.misc-like dumping ground
with jdk.internal.  We should prefer small, descriptive subpackages
for things like this so that, when they are (inevitably) exposed via
-XaddExports, their exposure can be limited.

I suggest putting this into jdk.internal.vm.annotation, which is
also a good place for the ReservedStackAccess annotation envisioned
in JEP 270 (http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/270).
