hwmon: (asus_atk0110) Don't load if ACPI resources aren't enforced

When the user passes the kernel parameter acpi_enforce_resources=lax,
the ACPI resources are no longer protected, so a native driver can
make use of them. In that case, we do not want the asus_atk0110 to be
loaded. Unfortunately, this driver loads automatically due to its
MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE, so the user ends up with two drivers loaded for
the same device - this is bad.

So I suggest that we prevent the asus_atk0110 driver from loading if
