Thermal: Documentation update
With commit 6503e5df08008b9a47022b5e9ebba658c8fa69af, the value of /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zoneX/mode has been changed from user/kernel to enabled/disabled. Update the documentation so that users won't be confused. Signed-off-by: Zhang Rui <rui.zhang@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
