[Nut-upsuser] Powercool UPS compatibility

I believe nutdrv_atcl_usb is orthogonal to nutdrv_qx "fuji" subdriver. They
both handle devices using an "ATCL" USB chip which does not have a
registered vendorId/productId, but that is where similarity stops.
Different UPS vendors implemented different protocols and abilities using
that chip as a transport, hence two unrelated drivers.

It seems the HCL entry appeared in relation to this discussion:

Looking at
it indeed does not have many settings, just an alternate "vendor" string to
match on a device which it finds with hardcoded vid:pid by looking at all
USB devices.

Unfortunately I can't help with setup of unRAID bit. I'd assume there is a
place to state which NUT driver you want.
