I didn't able to copy non-avro data to avro data and run select SQL. Only option is to change
the current behavior to reuse the provided column names. Separate JIRA regarding this could
be a choice.

Wouldn't select * or using the new column names (they're named deterministically) work?  This
is a major test since otherwise we're missing the most important code path...
ie
have a text file c1, c2, c3
create table t1
load data into t1 from text file
create table a1 as select c3, c2 where c2 = "foo" order by c3;
select * from a1;
describe extended a1;

And verify in the q file's result that the table is avro and that the correct rows and columns
got converted.
