[Nut-upsuser] Best way to shut down RH KVM/QEMU based VMs via NUT

Hi Ben,

On RHEL/CentOS 7, libvirt-guests (which comes from libvirt-client) on the
host controls the suspend vs. shutdown behavior of the guests.  By default
the guests suspend, but if you want them to shutdown, change the
ON_SHUTDOWN setting in /etc/sysconfig/libvirt-guests.  I don't have any
Windows guests, but the linux guests work nicely with the default suspend.
That said, I have only recently begun to see an issue with one of my
CentOS7 guests being resumed with incorrect time--haven't gotten to the
bottom of that one yet.
