Created attachment 125967 [details]

Forwarding from http://launchpad.net/bugs/1581594.  User has a disk drive that kept showing up as having a temperature of 99 C all the time because libatasmart is interpreting attribute 231 as temperature, when it is in fact used by some SSDs to indicate their life remaining.  The attached patch fixed it for this user.
