Unfortunately such list doesn’t exist because Toshiba doesn’t support CPU upgrades, just replacement.
To read more about it please check this document - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/FAQ7A01ZW0007R01.htm

It's risky upgrading the CPU in laptops, they are very different to Desktops.
If you install an incompatible CPU, you could do damage to the system, or the system may overheat or run unstable due to thermal and power differences.

Have a look at the other A105 models and determine what the fastest CPU is in the range.
There is a good chance that the fastest CPU in that range will work in your laptop, assuming it has the same BIOS and Chipset.

To be sure, only look at the PSAA8U-xxxxxx models. Other models (such as PSAA5U) may not be able to share the same CPU's.

Also, you should get an ASP to install it for you. You could damage other components if you dismantle the laptop yourself.
If you want to risk dismantling the laptop yourself, do a google search, there are some guides online.
Remember that if the laptop is under warranty or under extended warranty, the warranty will be voided if you change internal components.

The CPU can be exchanged of course but don’t forget that a new CPU costs a lot of and you will not get much more performance as yet.

Ask an ASP or notebook technician for help. Maybe the cooling assembly can’t cool the new CPU and so you can damage it.
