 The SMART command modes (-i/--immediate, -0/--auto-off and -1/--auto-on) were
 broken in an underhand manner and have been disabled. You can use smartctl
  -0/--auto-off:  use "smartctl --offlineauto=off"
  -1/--auto-on:   use "smartctl --offlineauto=on"
  -i/--immediate: use "smartctl --test=offline"
