	Yes again!

	The secret is salt and most of it is in the MPU401 driver
which is shared for both drivers.

	I guess I would start with the obvious, like what kind of
set-up do you have: Internal/external hardware, connected with what
kind of cables, does it work in Linux or Windows.

	Other than bit-rot in the last couple of months cmi should
work since it's one of two cards I have with MIDI support.

	I just got up-to date with the kernel yesterday so I'll see if
I can get it to work for me.

	I don't even know what street Canada is on.
