    ixgbe: check whether thermal sensor is enabled. · cb6d0f5e

    The X540's internal thermal sensor should not be enabled for all devices, but
    only those devices which enable it in the NVM image. It is expected that
    actively cooled devices will have it enabled, but passively cooled devices might
    not want it enabled. This is due to passively cooled devices operating very near
    the thermal threshold, sometimes within the margin of error of the thermal
    sensor. Thus these devices may not be good candidates for using the thermal
    This patch uses the enabled bit in the FWSM register to check whether we should
    be enabling the thermal sensor, and only sets the THERMAL_SENSOR_CAPABLE flag
    for those devices which have it enabled.
