Smartmontools

Smartmontools fork with signed temperature on some drive.

According to [ticket #42] 1, subzero temperature will not be supported in stock Smartmontools. It is true that raw value are vendor secret and unfortunatly the lack of standardization within S.M.A.R.T. attributes leads to this: all vendors have their own implementation.

While I totally agree with the idea that if we do not know how to threat the value, don't guess an interpretation. On the other hand, there are cases where we know how to interprete the data and those cases should not suffer from the lack of vendor's documentations.

As part of an embedded project that is required to run in a wide temperature range, smartmontools was modified to provide correct information on temperature.

Daemon smartd has not been tested. You've been warned!

update-smart-drivedb.in is broken. Do not use it with this release.
