Don't advertise unsupported UPS types
There are a bunch of UPSes that NUT supports using its netxml-ups driver. I have no idea whether these are still on the market and how widely used they are.
Our UPS configuration page provides a large list of UPS models and the drivers they use. The UPSes supported by netxml-ups are present in this list. What isn't present on FreeNAS is the actual netxml-ups driver.
We should either install this or remove the UPS models it supports from the driver list.

Digging through the commit history I found that NEON was disabled from the day of NUT addition by William 7 years ago. My main guess why it could be excluded is a very limited space on a boot device of those times, while NEON is an external library. Any other ideas, William? Now the space question is not so strict, so I would say that staying close with FreeBSD port defaults could be a bigger benefit, unless this hardware is completely dead now. Google for it please. On the other side, if this code allows easy UPS support testing, QA could be interested even if there is no real hardware.

NEON was disabled because it was bringing a whole lot of dependencies.
Even though we have more space I prefer to stay as small as possible unless there is a real a reason add things.
We have this for many years and nobody has ever asked for this so that must mean something.

Candidate fix that filters the UPS dropdown based on which UPS drivers are actually present:
