Well, I couldn't let this one go. I did the following - call me paranoid if you like...

1) Downloaded WinIAP_Fix Touchpad.zip, and the MSI firmware I mentioned earlier as a comparison.
2) Compared the readable strings of corresponding executables - nothing suspicious, files look like different versions of same executable.
3) Uploaded file to a number of virus-scanning websites - nothing suspicious reported.
4) Loaded Win10 virtual machine, opened the firmware update utility, then ran virus scanners in VM - nothing suspicious reported.

Finally

5) Installed the firmware update in my real Win10 partition.

Confirming that this fixes the touchpad in Ubuntu 17.04, and that the touchpad still works in Win10.

I still can't guarantee that this didn't install a virus somewhere, but it's nice to have the touchpad working!
