The driver.

That should help. Unfortunately for non-debug operation, it appears that most of the usbhid-ups instcmd messages are buried at debug level 3 or 5. That should probably be addressed when we increase the verbosity for OL/OB events. (Github issue #79) The syslog() level LOG_INFO should show up in most syslog configurations.

Definitely let us know. It is certainly possible that we are not sending the battery test command correctly, or that something is preventing it from being sent.
