it's the old-new one. Based upon the NetBSD one, enhanced by tanimura
and large parts rewritten by matk.

Yuriy Tsibizov (of emu10kx fame) took the code and integrated it into
-current to be able to use it with his emu10kx driver (it will enter
the tree when he fixed some bugs after his holiday).

The commit contains changes to the emu10k1 and cmi drivers. People with
such a soundcard may want to give it a try (the driver module should
load the midi module automatically).

We do not have a maintainer for this! I will try to fix panics, and I
may have a look at LOR's if one shows up (in both cases send a PR
please, for panics you have to compile the sound stuff into the kernel
instead of using modules... except you *really* know how to produce
useful backtraces with modules). I repeat: WE DO NOT HAVE A MAINTAINER

So if your soundcard does not make use of the midi code, send patches.
If you miss a midi-feature in this code, send patches.


P.S.: I'm interested in success reports. What does work and what does
not work? We need a man page for this stuff. Please answer to
