I proceeded with this move as it appears it is unlikely any is using 
this provider...This change is only for 2.6, ping me please if you feel 
it is still needed. At any time in the future we can get a dedicated 
codegen module which will keep both SourceGenerator and (restored) 
CodeGeneratorProvider code if there's some demand for it

But for now it's one more step toward simplifying the jaxrs frontend a bit
