sadly, this is part of the missing things in this driver.
As told a few days ago, and soon again in the 2.8.0 roadmap announce, I've
planned to rewrite this driver and fix this kind of remaining issues. If

you're working at Buffalo!? interesting, since I wanted to contact you
about integrating NUT in your NAS range...
