Beside from the known list of tickets for 2.7.3, I had some late additions
tied to "Eaton renewed implication in NUT" (ABM and Energy Saving, along
with the below ePDU one).
Sorry for the lag and lack of communication Charles... I'm still not in the
optimal zone...

The whole list of remaining things is:

- #197: upsc on ePDU show ups.status only (snmp) => DONE
That one is tricky: as commented, some devices (such as big ePDU) generates
too much info and upsd doesn't keep up in async (default) mode.
For the short run, I've added a *synchronous* flag to address this
exceptional case. That doesn't touch the normal behavior when not used.
Thanks to Daniele for the review and catching my errors :)
Branch (nonblocking_drv) merged.

- #190: upsd: NSS SSL only working in debug mode => NEED TESTING before
Emilien has made a fix and PR  (#199: Initialize SSL after deamonize and
downgrade to user.)
The user (Melkor Lord) has ack'ed the fix.
The fix is indeed trivial but I want to ensure that there is no regression
for OpenSSL now (though theoretically, there shouldn't be).
Testing welcome, while waiting to discuss with Emilien to see if he did
some non-reg testing too.
Thanks a lot to Emilien for his work on this!

- Eaton ABM (Advanced Battery Monitoring): this is something I wanted to
address for ~8 years now. => almost DONE
This is now done in both HID (USB and serial), XCP (USB and serial) and
Eaton XML still remains to be addressed. But I've planned an XML cleanup
ticket for 2.7.4
(#201: Cleanup and complete Eaton XML v3 support / mge-xml code)
I'm still completing a few things, but it's almost good (final commit

Now, there just remain the Release things, such as NEWS and the like...
I'll be focusing on that now.
So almost good for 2.7.3. The big remainder is still NSS testing WRT
non-reg of OpenSSL.
To me, it's good to go. But considering the previous issue, I want to be
100 % sure this time :)
