I just wonder how many of those differences are just differences in the
specification, rather than differences in the hardware implementation.
In some cases it might be that the old hardware just ignored the value.

I know that the xhci hardware on my ivy bridge cpu does look at that
value (at least checking for zero), since things failed in subtle ways
when I got it wrong.

In this case it was just something easy to change that might be worth
trying. I didn't necessarily expect it to make a positive difference.
