ssh_connection:send/4 on R13B04 with the last argument as "infinity" fails

On R13B04, when using
ssh_connection:send(ConnectionManager, ChannelId, Data, Timeout)
with Timeout as 'infinity' (atom), the function crashes
with the error on erlang:size([infinity]).

The following small patch will fix this, by explicitly treating
the 'infinity' atom in the pattern matching of
lib/src/ssh_connection.erl.
