    Description

      Compilation of this code:
      package javaapplication1;

      public class Main {

          public static void main(String[] args) {
              @SuppressWarnings("deprecation")
              java.rmi.RMISecurityException ex;
          }

      }

      with "-Xlint:deprecation" produces:

      /tmp/JavaApplication1/src/javaapplication1/Main.java:7: warning: [deprecation] java.rmi.RMISecurityException in java.rmi has been deprecated

      This does not seem right, as JLS 9.6.1.5 says that:
      "a Java compiler must not report any warning identified by one of S1, ... , S k if that warning would have been generated as a result of the annotated declaration or any of its parts"

      Tested this on:
      [snip]/jdk17/bin$ ./java -version
      java version "1.7.0-ea"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-ea-b18)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.7.0-ea-b18, mixed mode)
      Another case where the @SuppressWarnings("deprecation") does not work correctly:
      package javaapplication5;

      @Deprecated
      public class A {
      }

      package javaapplication5;

      @SuppressWarnings("deprecation")
      public class B extends A { //reports "A is deprecated" here

      }
