For consistency, the inverse of a singular matrix should return all Inf.  For

inv (1e22*ones(2,2))
warning: matrix singular to machine precision
ans =

   Inf   Inf
   Inf   Inf

Currently Octave usually returns all NaN matrix along with an rcond of NaN. 
However, this depends on the version of BLAS being used.  Such a dependency is
undesirable as well as being the wrong result.
