Determine location for type annotations earlier in compiler pipeline

        Description

        Presently, the location and type path information for a type annotation is determined by resolveFrame, which is called late in the pipeline, after repeating annotations handling in particular. This is a source of problems, not the least of which is that the position of some annotations is not updated until after repeating annotations has built containers.

        An alternative is to build location information during attribution, attach it to the JCAnnotation tree node, and use the information when attaching annotations to their respective symbols.
