In the meantime I've done extensive googling for dmesg output of a laptop that
satisfies all three conditions listed above, but I come back empty-handed. I
did find machines with a PCI_CLASS_DISPLAY_3D Nvidia card and an HDA device on
function 1, but those weren't laptops. So it looks to me like we're good right
now but we'll definitely need to amend hda_intel.c if we expose the HDA device
on all modern cards.

No, that file contains the driver for all PCI HDA devices, its name is a
historic artifact.
