So, 0x1 should correspond to AvSOC (i.e. non-filtered RepSOC), while
right now we write 0x3 (VFSOC) to MiscCFG for devices without current
sense [1]. Could you elaborate on why AvSOC should be used for alert
if we use VFSOC to get PROP_CAPACITY?

On this particular device it does not seem to make a difference what I
use for the SOC alert, the alert triggers all the time in any case
since RepSOC does not give an accurate value. Supposedly this happens
because ModelGauge configuration is incomplete, as you said. Looking
at the registers used by the ModelGauge it seems that only the
"characterization table" at 0x80 - 0xAF is missing. The rest (FullCap,
DesignCap, ICHGTerm, ..) are set to the same values as with vendor

Thanks for taking the time to explain this.
