So far, I'm aware of 2 devices using max17048 that need this setting. That
would be 100% of the 17048 devices I know of [1]. At the same time, according to
the max17048 documentation this is not the case.

[1] These are the Samsung Galaxy S5 (klte) and the LG Nexus 5 (hammerhead).

This is even weirder. There is no mention in the documentation about whether
the device should be reset on boot (because the fuelgauge is on even during
device off times). Testing on 17040 and 17043 reveals no issues with resetting
on boot, but on the 17048 I have; the readings are up to 2x wrong if you do
reset on boot. Not doing a reset *might* leave the device in a state that is
not 100% known by the driver, but I don't know of any real world problems
stemming from that.

So in a sense, I can apply both of these quirks for 17048, and it will work for
all devices I have tested on, but it won't follow the spec. That is why
I decided to mark them as special behavior needing configuration per use case.
On the other hand, I can incorporate them in 17048, and if someone complains
the bindings can be introduced later (because they are stable API and
introducing them now is a bit over engineered).

P.S sorry for the double email, forgot reply-all
