[Nut-upsdev] Merging blzr as blazer (and un-merging voltronic?)

Thanks again for your work on both the voltronic and blzr drivers. To get the most exposure to new drivers, what we have typically done in the past is to rename the existing driver as *-old, so that users get the new driver by default when they upgrade (but the old driver is still available if there are regressions). This is how we are incorporating Michal's apcsmart updates.

On your recommendation, I merged voltronic into master for the upcoming 2.7.x release. But if blzr supersedes both voltronic and blazer, I propose we rename blazer_{ser,usb} to blazer_{ser,usb}_old, then rename blzr* to blazer*, and revert the voltronic merge.

Does that sound reasonable? (I'm not sure how different the configurations would be for these various drivers.)
