Well, Toshiba Japan has a Linux developers' page (in Japanese):

According to that page, their mail address for requests from developers is:

so if you don't get any satisfaction from Toshiba USA/Europe/wherever you're
living, try asking Toshiba Japan (they do ask that you be specific, so if you
send them a request, make sure to state exactly which models/chipsets, etc.,

email in English). They do seem to be quite good lately about releasing
documentation - Dag Brattli got some info on the IrDA hardware they use, and
