Hi Kirill,

sorry for the long delay in answering...

I've merged, in the CVS development tree, a modified version of your driver.
What I've done:
- created al175.h for consistency
- disabled (not removed) non conformant vars and status
- remove the "goto".
- modified man/Makefile.in

Please test it, and ack back.
some more info below...

yes, fine thanks.
there are still things left, like:
- DEBUG should be removed: have a look at mge-shut.c/dump_hex()
More generally, have a look at upslogx and upsdebugx possibilities.
These allows runtime tracing, for logging (into syslog and alike) or
debugging, without the need to recompile.
- indent: http://eu1.networkupstools.org/doc/2.0.1/developers.html
Use tab please!
- alarm_handler()!

that's what I've done. So you still have these for further use

I hope I've not forgotten anything, but I don't make promise ;-)
