No, I have exactly the same (self-compiled kernel based on Debian 
kernel-source with CONFIG_ACPI_TOSHIBA=m).

But from http://memebeam.org/toys/ExperimentalToshibaAcpiDriver:

  Question: Will this experimental driver ever be rolled into the
  mainstream kernel? I've been using toshiba_acpi_0.18-dev_toshiba_test4
  for nearly a year, without any problems. 

  The driver is stable, but the issue is that the original toshiba driver
  "owns" the /dev/toshiba device, and I'm not sure if it's ok for my
  driver to co-opt it. Also, it's not clear to me how distributions will
  configure which module gets loaded when a program accesses /dev/toshiba.

And if I look at the kernel source, I don't see this [1] patch in 
toshiba_acpi.c, so I do not have /dev/toshiba and /proc/toshiba that seem 
to be needed for toshset; just the /proc/acpi/toshiba from the "official"
