According to the fact that this is setting the enable bit
of the south bridge on this host, the issue appears to be
not tactile. (If your fix where wrong, your system would simply
not work at all.) I will therefore just simply take this patch as
it is... And then I couldn't find any other places
where the 0x02 bit would be used on register 0x79.

Possibly someone just misscounted the bits reading some
errate for different reviaions... or just the errata was wrong.

But before could you just tell the m5229_revision value
on your system?
