It's a matter of history, and a conflict between the toshiba_acpi and
toshiba drivers. Back in 2005 there was talk of merging the patch:
http://marc.info/?l=acpi4linux&m=111858594719468&w=2

Unfortunately, things stalled for reasons I do not know. The conflict
seems to be over the /dev/toshiba device. Perhaps the device could just
be renamed (and userspace utilities modified).
