Each S.M.A.R.T. attribute is compared against a threshold. If it is LESSTHAN that threshold an error is reported.
This patch fixes the problem, that attribute values EQUAL to the threshold are reported as error, which is wrong. Only LESSTHAN the threshold is an error.

My SSD has some attributes which value and threshold are "0". Without the patch this is reported as errornous.
