Default Dropped patch: toshiba_acpi

Regarding the post by Andy Whitcroft on 14 June 2010, titled:



[Maverick] please drop 'UBUNTU: SAUCE: toshiba_acpi --
pull in current -dev version of driver'



Which is at the following link:

https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kernel-team/2010-June/011112.html



The dropped patch has definitely been noticed - by many people.
Please see this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/toshset/+bug/644898



Please re-instate this patch.*



Thank you,

Mark Crompton

Please don't. This functionality needs to be merged into the driver, not
punted out in a way that lets userspace trigger arbitrary SMIs.
