> The avg() udf, when applied to a decimal column, selects the precision/scale of the intermediate
sum field as (p+4, s+4), which is the same for the precision/scale of the avg() result. However,
the additional scale increase is unnecessary, and the problem of data overflow may occur.
The requested change is that for the intermediate sum result,  the precsion/scale is set to
(p+10, s), which is consistent to sum() udf. The avg() result still keeps its precision/scale.
