I am the former maintainer.  I orphaned the package because I no longer
have a Toshiba notebook.  I would recommend asking on debian-user or
debian-laptop to see if someone can help.  I will look into it and see
what I can come up with, but it may not be much.  If you can create and
test a patch (or have someone else do so), I would gladly performa QA
upload of the package.

Another possibility might be to contact upstream.
