smartmontools needs to be updated

I use S4500 Intel's SSD.

With the default proxmox's smartmontools package (6.5+svn4324-1), SMART is not correctly reported: Wearout 0%, unknown_attributes, and bad attributes: Power_Loss_Cap_Test displayed as Program_Fail_Count_Chip.

A patch was provided by Intel:

Can you provide an update for this package ?
Issues partially resolved after updating the file drivedb.h from lastest
SMART values now working except wearout who stays at 0%
Correction: Wearout is working

In the datasheet:
"The normalized value declines lineary from 100 to 1 as the average erase cycle
count increase from 0 to the maximum rated cycles"

It's just displayed as 0% instead of 100%
