sysutils/nut: Update to 2.8.1

sysutils/nut*: Add upslog support for multiple UPSs

upslog is a utility that logs UPS status at regular intervals, specified
by the -i option. Unfortunately upslog supports only on UPS. For sites
that need to monitor multiple UPSs the options are to cobble an rc script
for each or doctor up the nut_upslog.in script to support cloning of the
script. Unfortunately an rc script capable of being cloned would become
the source of more PRs and would require significanly more tehcnical
documentation that by itself might become confusing for the average
system administrator.

Therefore a new -m option is added to support multiple UPSs using the
same invocation of upslog. The patch parses a new -m option and using a
single connection to upsd, queries it for stats about multiple UPSs.

An rc.conf exemple of how to use this new feature:
nut_upslog_flags="-p /var/db/nut/upslog.pid -m ups1@localhost,/var/log/nut\
/ups1.log -m ups2@localhost,/var/log/nut/ups2.log"

Revert "sysutils/nut*: Add upslog support for multiple UPSs"

upslog is failing to make multiple connections to upsd resulting
in some UPSs logging and others not. This is likely some bug
in upsd's socket handling.

Even though this patch worked for me locally it did not for the
person reporting the problem.

A better approach would be to use select() instead.

Therefore a new -m option is added to support multiple UPSs using the

almost immediately following the getopt(3) invokation to monitor each
individual UPS using a separate upslog process. This is not ideal but
