new java.util.BitSet and Synchronization

This is the optimized version of java.util.BitSet.
I use an array of long, so hashCode() and Serialization
are as JDK1.2 spec.
It leave a synchronization problem for methods equals(),
and()... : they need a lock on two BitSet, this and the parameter.
The problem is a possible dead lock, and I don't know how to workaround:
Imagine two BitSet a and b, and two threads t1 and t2.
t1 executes a.equals(b)
t2 executes b.equals(a)
equals() should lock a and b in the same order for the two threads
but I don't know how to check the order :(
Have you ideas ?
Thanks in advance,
a.equals(b) and b.equals(a)
