[Nut-upsuser] Install problems (group permissions) with nut 2.7.2

Well, having spent a decent amount of time trying to get my driver file added into the Makefile build system (and failing), I've decided that for now, simply adding that one line to the openups-hid.c file and recompiling is the best route to go.  When I can no longer live with the limited nature of the openups-hid driver, I'll revisit writing our own.

Thanks  for the helps.
