[Python] pyarrow.NULL equals to itself

    Description

      Somewhat related to ARROW-6386 on the interpretation of nulls, we currently have the following behaviour:

      In [28]: pa.NULL == pa.NULL                                                                                                                                                                                        
      Out[28]: True
      

      Which I think is certainly unexpected for a null / missing value. I still need to check what the array-level compare kernel does (NULL or False? ideally NULL I think), but we should follow that.
