Hi y'all,

What happened to src/sys/dev/sound/midi/* ?

There's nothing mentioned in /src/UPDATING .

I cannot find a cvs commit entry for it by searching at

I see no "HEADS UP" in the maillists anywhere over the past
two weeks concerning this.

In my CTM logs, since we were on holiday early this week, I
got caught up to the CTM buckets on June 1, and this is the
CTM "file/dir remove" entries for that entire subdir:

My kernel is exploding during building. 
This is my _entire_ buildkernel log:

Indeed the two NOTES files do not contain 'midi' or 
'seq' anymore.  And nothing to replace them.

I suppose I will comment-out those two lines in my kernel. 

How are we to use MIDI devices in the meantime?

It would be nice for some d-o-c-u-m-e-n-t-a-t-i-o-n
as to what's going on, please?  Hint hint?   ;)
