Yes, but unfortunately we still need it. The belkin-hid subdriver uses
some status information that we can only by querying the UPS as one
report over the interrupt pipe is broken. Sadly enough this is the one
that sets the LB indication, a status that we certainly don't want to miss.

Best regards, Arjen

PS  Weren't you supposed to be on holiday? Peter and I are executing all
kinds of mischief now that you're absent. Should we hold back until
you're really out in the woods? :-)
