I gather from DMI info provided by Rob and Jesse that affected machines
could be determined by dmi_check_system() using these two checks:
- DMI_SYS_VENDOR contains "TOSHIBA" && DMI_PRODUCT_VERSION contains
"PS5", i.e. most of Satellite 5xxx, as well as
- DMI_SYS_VENDOR contains "TOSHIBA" && DMI_PRODUCT_VERSION contains
"PSM4", i.e. all Satellite M4x.
A few more series are probably affected too.

BTW, the author of the initial incarnation of the patch is this person:
