>            Priority: Minor
> When writing some generic code, I encountered a situation where I needed a TypeInformation[Nothing].
Two problems prevent me from getting it:
> 1. TypeInformationGen.mkTypeInfo doesn't return a real TypeInformation[Nothing]. (It
actually returns a casted null in that case.)
> 2. The line
> implicit def createTypeInformation[T]: TypeInformation[T] = macro TypeUtils.createTypeInfo[T]
> does not fire in some situations when it should, when T = Nothing. (I guess this is a
compiler bug.)
> I will open a PR shortly.
