[Nut-upsuser] Support for Tripp Lite SmartOnline SU1000XLA?

I'm running the latest stable nut (2.4.3).  It doesn't appear to provide
support for the Tripp Lite SmartOnline SU1000XLA.

    driver = usbhid-ups
    port = auto
    vendorid = 09ae
    productid = 4004

4337# upsdrvctl start
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.4.3
Network UPS Tools - Generic HID driver 0.34 (2.4.3)
USB communication driver 0.31
Using subdriver: TrippLite HID 0.4
libusb_get_report: could not claim interface 0: Device or resource busy
Got disconnected by another driver: Device or resource busy
Can't initialize data from HID UPS
Driver failed to start (exit status=1)

I did an 'fuser -m -v /dev/usb/hiddev0' just prior, and the file was
unused by any other process, so the error report is a little odd.

(Another oddity is that the file _was_ earlier claimed by encfs, when I
had an encrypted file system mounted, where no USB was involved at all.
Don't understand that.  I unmounted that before running upsdrvctl.)

I'm running Debian Lenny amd64, FWIW.

I don't have a serial port on the computer I'm using, so to make this
work I need to use USB.  Any chance this unit will be supported soon?

Best regards,
