Are there means of system identification in Linux that would allow
yenta_socket to determine what it is running on? ACPI DSDT?

Can other systems with this same Toshiba bridge be found for testing?

In the long run noone obviously wants any breakage, especially if it
only is a matter of formalizing consistent hardware behavior in code.
