I've added all the specified meters from the bcmxcp spec, and the driver 
now checks using meter map and command map received from the actual UPS, 
to see what the UPS supports.

Here is the output from upsc using the modified driver, for 5110, so I 
do not think it will possible to get more data from this model :

You can see the changes merged into the bcmxcp branch at :
And some more details about what meters have been added :
