We have not tested the USB connection, but based on other drivers, this
likely is not going to work. Unless the serial-to-USB converter that is
most likely used in the UPS is recognized by the kernel (in is installed
as a /dev/ttyUSB* device), this requires 'serial_usb.o' which is not yet

Yes, you do. You need the version from the SVN trunk which I'm about to
submit in a couple of minutes from now.

If you connect the USB cable and a /dev/ttyUSB* interface is made
available, you could use that. Otherwise, you don't (it won't work).
