I recalled not being able to install org.eclipse.equinox.common, because as you noted above, it has dependencies on org.eclipse.osgi.framework.log and others that are currently exported by the main Equinox bundle.
Having said that, the supplemental bundle you mention looks like it exports those packages, which would make it work on Felix.
It's unfortunate that you need two separate configurations depending on whether you're using Equinox or Felix, as it makes a simple install list difficult to create. I'd imagine installing the supplemental into the Equinox runtime would fail, in much the same way that not having it in Felix would.
The bundles are well hidden on the download page - you have to follow the 'downloads' link followed by selecting one of the builds (E.g. 3.8.1) and then clicking on the drop-down triangle next to the 'Add-on bundles' section. In the case of the supplemental one, it's here:
It's quite possible that installing this will fix the problems I saw last time (I hadn't heard of it either). I'll see if I can investigate further this weekend and report back.
