[PATCH] thermal: imx: Correct run_measurement check method

It is incorrect to use irq_enabled flag for run_measurement check, as
irq_enabled is NOT always equal to thermal mode, when temperature is
higher than passive point, an alarm irq will be pending, and irq_enabled
flag will be set to false while thermal mode is still enabled, then the
following temperature read will power down thermal sensor, and next time
irq_enabled flag will set to true when temperature drop to below than
passive point, next temperature read will fail due to thermal sensor is NOT
power up at all, the error log is as below:

  root at imx6qdlsolo:~# cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp
  cat: /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp: Resource temporarily unavailable

So, it should read the thermal sensor's power down bit to decide whether
to run measurement.
