RFR: 8228988 - Type annotation parser throws null pointer upon incompatible attribute type

the type annotation parser does not currently check if a member type for an
enum or annotation type is actually still an enum or annotation type at
runtime upon resolving an annotation. This causes a null pointer exception
while it should yield an incompatibility exception upon resolving the
property instead.
