hwmon: (lm63) Add sensor type attribute for external sensor on LM96163
On LM96163, the external temperature sensor type is configurable to either a thermal diode or a 3904 transistor. The chip reports a wrong temperature if misconfigured. Add writable attribute to support it. Signed-off-by: Guenter Roeck <> Signed-off-by: Jean Delvare <>
