There are two issues in equals method in HiveLockObject:
1. Arrays.equals(pathNames, tgt.pathNames) might return false for the same path in HiveLockObject since in current Hive, the pathname components might be stored in two ways, taking a dynamic partition path db/tbl/part1/part2 as an example, it might be stored in the pathNames as an array of four elements, db, tbl, part1, and part2 or as an array only having one element db/tbl/part1/part2. It will be safer to comparing the pathNames using StringUtils.equals(this.getName(), tgt.getName())
2. The comparison logic is not right.
