just guessing. Since the touchscreen controller is a slave of the I2C
controller, you have to have a (ACPI) driver to enable the I2C and
potentially also the right I2C slaves.

again, just guessing. Your workaround sounds bit like a part of the
initialize sequence of the I2C controller.

again, just guessing. Probably you need/have to find the right acpi
method to initialize the I2C controller, so that the slaves, as your
touchscreen, may work properly.

... just guessing: the Linux kernel initialize the I2C controller for
sure fully, thats why the I2C method in the ACPI tables of your I2C
slave work in Linux ?
If all my guessing above is wrong, another direction could be to check
the version of the acpica library used by Genode and the ACPICA version
you have in the Linux kernel. I know that ACPICA library code and Linux
code does not exactly match (but they have common roots), so that one
may possibly deduce the difference in the behavior. Maybe a update to a
new ACPICA library version for Genode can help (since there a features
and fixes in the upstream ACPICA library according to the changelog) ?
