RFR: 8265591: Remove vestiages of intermediate JSR 175 annotation format

During the recent review of JDK-8228988, I noticed again the comments in the annotation parser about support for the pre-GA annotation format used before JDK 5.0 shipped. During the development of annotations, there was a late change to correct a flaw in the annotation encoding, JDK-5020908.
I don't think it is necessary to carry forward support for this transient format any longer and this changeset removes support from both core reflection and javac.
Clean runs of relevant test; I gauge this fix as no-reg hard.
