Developer wanted for toshiba_hci

toshiba_hci works by using the Intel SMM interface and using it to send appropriate values to the Toshiba HCI. This tool re-implements several of the functions of the 'Toshiba laptops extras' and ACPI Linux kernel patches, as well as (in future) adding extra functionality, but all in a user-space program that does not require any kernel patching. As long as it is run with root privileges (or is installed setuid root !warning - code has not been security audited!), it can do things like alter the LCD brightness, turn the system fan on and off, and more.
