Yes, I am sure. I have observed this on a fully configured max17055 with 
ModelGauge m5. It also makes sense to me based on what I read in the code and 
datasheets.

There were two kinds of storms - the short ones happening on each SOC change 
caused by SOC threshold alerts set by max17042_set_soc_threshold which 
eventually got cleared by reconfiguring the thresholds; and a huge one 
happening when SOC got down to 0% that did not get away until the battery got 
charged to at least 1% at which point the thresholds got reconfigured again 
(which is how I noticed the underflow fixed by the second patch).

Besides, I also have patches for configuring m5 gauge via DT that I'll send 
once I clean them up.

I have checked all the bits in the Status register and aside of Bst, POR and 
bunch of "don't-care" bits they're all alert indicators that we either handle 
explicitly in the interrupt handler (Smn/Smx) or implicitly via 
power_supply_changed (Imn/Imx, Vmn/Vmx, Tmn/Tmx, dSOCi, Bi/Br). The driver 
unconditionally enables alerts for SOC thresholds and all the rest stays 
effectively disabled at POR; however, a bootloader or firmware may configure it 
differently, which may be wanted for things like resuming from suspend when a 
bad condition happens. Therefore we need to clear all the bits anyway and I'm 
not sure whether iterating through them in a "if set then clear" loop gains us 
anything aside of additional lines of code.
