[Nut-upsuser] Eaton Powerware 5110 - some stats not reported

The driver will poll the UPS for what variables it supports when it starts, and then go into a polling loop.  Look for a section defining the meter map, and you should see the result, as well as the raw data.  You can get the comm spec for  XCP from the nut site if you want to delve deeper. I'd give more specifics, but am out of town and only working from memory at the moment . . .
