Scalac report a warning on @deprecated(...) var if its type contains deprecated type.

@deprecated("Non-standard", "0.1")
class StreatmEvent {}

class RTCPeerConnection {
  @deprecated("Non-standard", "0.1")
  var onaddstream: js.Function1[StreatmEvent, _] = js.native

However, inconsitently, scalac does not report a warning on @deprecated(...) def that uses deprecated type.

@deprecated("Non-standard", "0.1")
class StreatmEvent {}

class RTCPeerConnection {
  @deprecated("Non-standard", "0.1")
  def onaddstream: js.Function1[StreatmEvent , _] = js.native

  @deprecated("Non-standard", "0.1")
  def onaddstream_= (handler: js.Function1[StreatmEvent , _]): Unit = js.native

For me working on scala-js/scala-js-dom#367, no warnings on member already marked as @deprecated is preferrable.
But it may depends on use case.

The annotation isn't winding up on the field. (Same issue with val.)

I looked at how it's done and went blind. Annotations from trees have to be attached to symbols. Possibly they are rethinking the mechanism #10459 I ran out of morning coffee before I saw why getters and setters work but not the field sym.

Also deprecate backing field symbols.
    @deprecated val foo: T = some.deprecated(call)
    private[this] val `foo `: T = some.deprecated(call)
    @deprecated <accessor> def foo: T = this.`foo `
where the `@deprecated` has been slapped on the def (where it'll incur
deprecation warnings on callers) but not on the val (where it'll
suppress deprecation warnings on the body.

Just copy the annotation across.

Fixes scala/bug#11538 in an expedient manner.
