Feature #10641: Introduce Fixnum#finite? and Bignum#finite?

Hello,
I propose to introduce `Fixnum#finite?` and `Bignum#finite?` methods. Use case for this is following:

```ruby
Interval = Struct.new(:from, :to) do
  def finite?
    from.finite? && to.finite?
  end
end
```

For now this works:

```ruby
Interval.new(1.5, 1000.0).finite?
Interval.new(1.5, Float::INFINITY).finite?
```

But this fails due to absence of `Fixnum#finite?`:

```ruby
Interval.new(1, 3).finite?
Interval.new(1, Float::INFINITY).finite?
```

It looks natural that `Fixnum#finite?` should always return `true`. I didn't worked extensively with `Bignum`-s, but probably `Bignum#finite?` should also always be `true`.
