Bug description:
  Overview -

  This bug affects many Toshiba laptops including R700, R705, R800,
  R830, R835, R840, R850, Z930 models - please update this description
  if your model is also affected, but make sure the symptoms match

  The symptoms are that brightness control operates normally when the
  system is first booted, but after a suspend-to-RAM and resume cycle
  the brightness controls have no effect.

  After a normal reboot, or hibernate & resume cycle, the brightness
  controls operate normally again.

  This bug is tracked for the kernel at:

  And for Debian at:

  Please try to keep all info together and pass any progress to the
  upstream trackers.

  Original report for #935778 follows:

  On my Toshiba R840, the brightness controls work fine on first boot,
  but do nothing after suspend/resume.  This is particularly frustrating
  if I suspend with the screen at all dimmed, because once I resume, I
  have no way of increasing the brightness short of a reboot.
