      Description

      javac (with the module support) fails to compile module-info.java file when an annotation processor is specified via the -processor option. Without the -processor option, javac successfully compiles that module-info.java file.

      To reproduce:

      // m/module-info.java
      @ImportModules({
          @ImportModule(name="java.se")
      })

      module m;

      $ <JDK>/bin/javac -source 7 -target 7 module-info.java
        - compiled successfully

      $ <JDK>/bin/javac -source 7 -target 7 -processor MyProcessor module-info.java
      initialising...
      module-info.java:1: incompatible types
      found : java.module.annotation.ImportModules
      required: java.lang.annotation.Annotation
      @ImportModules({
       ^
      1 error

      Attached is the MyProcessor.java.
