    [SPARK-17545] [SQL] Handle additional time offset formats of ISO 8601

    ## What changes were proposed in this pull request?
    Allows flexibility in handling additional ISO 8601 time offset variants. 
The current parsing of ISO 8601 is exclusive to W3C's datetime note (and XML 
Schema datetime). This change will allow offset to be handled as "HH:MM", 
"HHMM" and "HH".
    This is one suggested approach to handling these variants. The other 
suggestions are to switch back to SimpleDateFormat and utilize the 'X' pattern 
flag. Another suggestion is to wait for a future release of commons-lang. 
Either of these suggestions can be implemented later over top of this 
    ## How was this patch tested?
    The patch was tested by running all existing unit tests and by augmenting 
the existing tests with additional assertions.
