On a second thought. Status gets set only after the next second.

if ALARM2 status bit is set that surely means interrupt has fired but if
it is not set then there are 2 possibilities

1) ALARM2 is missed as the roll over happened
2) ALARM2 yet to fire as we are yet to get to the next second.

On the other hand Seconds gives me clear indication if we missed the
interrupt or we are about to get one.
