/proc/acpi/toshiba entries are not created with by kernel 184.108.40.206 with
ACPI20050708. Hence it is no longer possible to get/set Toshiba specific settings.
Plain kernel 220.127.116.11 is fine however.
Steps to reproduce:
boot with 18.104.22.168 patched with ACPI20050708. Notice that /proc/acpi/toshiba is

tried plain vanilla kernel 2.6.13-rc4 today, comes with ACPI20050408. Here
/proc/acpi/toshiba is missing too.
And I do have CONFIG_TOSHIBA=y and CONFIG_ACPI_TOSHIBA=y in my .config.
When was it decided to ditch the Toshiba entries ?

Please build with CONFIG_ACPI_HOTKEY=n

Did so with plain 2.6.13-rc6, which comes with CONFIG_ACPI_HOTKEY=n by default :
still no /proc/acpi/toshiba entries.
hmmm, does it work if you boot with "acpi_specific_hotkey"?

Well yes, it does ! I will report back on trying the fix from comment #7.
I applied the patch to 2.6.13-rc6 and can confirm that if fixes the problem of
the missing /proc/acpi/toshiba entries. Job well done, Len !
linus pulled this fix in after 2.6.13-rc6 -- closing.
