Infinity, -Infinity, NaN should be recognized in a case insensitive manner

      Description

      When the inputs contain the constant 'infinity', Spark SQL does not generate the expected results.

      SELECT avg(CAST(x AS DOUBLE)), var_pop(CAST(x AS DOUBLE))
      FROM (VALUES ('1'), (CAST('infinity' AS DOUBLE))) v(x);
      SELECT avg(CAST(x AS DOUBLE)), var_pop(CAST(x AS DOUBLE))
      FROM (VALUES ('infinity'), ('1')) v(x);
      SELECT avg(CAST(x AS DOUBLE)), var_pop(CAST(x AS DOUBLE))
      FROM (VALUES ('infinity'), ('infinity')) v(x);
      SELECT avg(CAST(x AS DOUBLE)), var_pop(CAST(x AS DOUBLE))
      FROM (VALUES ('-infinity'), ('infinity')) v(x);

       The root cause: Spark SQL does not recognize the special constants in a case insensitive way. In PostgreSQL, they are recognized in a case insensitive way.
