[Framework] Implicit boot delegation doesn't delegate for external code in all cases

                 Key: FELIX-2670
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-2670
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Framework
    Affects Versions: framework-3.0.5
            Reporter: Richard S. Hall
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: framework-3.2.0

When determining if a class is not from a bundle in ModuleImpl.isClassNotLoadedFromBundle()
(terrible method name, by the way), it attempts to ignore all framework classes by checking
if the target class' class loader is the same as the framework's class loader. This check
it too broad since the framework's class loader is typically the app class loader, which means
that any other code on the class path will not trigger implicit boot delegation.

You could argue that implicit boot delegation was intended for JRE code and this is ok. However,
just by changing the framework launcher to use a different class loader for the framework,
you would get implicit boot delegation for code on the class path, so it seems odd that we
trigger it under one situation but not another.

Perhaps the simple solution is to not perform a class loader check, but to compare the package
namespace (i.e., use org.apache.felix.framework to determine framework classes).
