[SciPy-Dev] adding chkfinite flags to linalg functions

Hi list,

I just got the idea of a very simple improvement of
asarray_chkfinite: instead of calling isfinite on the
array, call it on its sum. That's much faster as no
intermedite array has to be created. I got a significant
speed improvement by this, so that now
asarray_chkfinite does not take up a significant time
of the total running time of the linear algebra

I commited a pull request
