Ping John, any update on this?

If toshiba_acpi reports "no such device", that means your hardware/BIOS isn't supported by the driver. The driver is perhaps too broadly named-- it was only intended to support Toshiba laptops having a specific ACPI function available. As for the toshiba driver, I don't maintain it and can't comment. Please close this bug.

Ok, I have just understood that the backlight control I lacked can be achieved by loading the 'video' driver by hands, though cpufreq still does not work even with 'cpufreq_userspace' module. Please, close the bug, I do not know how to do it. I am afraid to do something wrong.
