I discovered that on plugging in a USB MIDI device, the module
snd_seq_device is loaded, bringing with it the dependency snd_rawmidi. This
would suffice for apps which use the "raw" MIDI interface, but not the
"sequencer" MIDI interface. I have always used the latter, and until
recently this has worked.

I think that if the snd_seq_midi module could be loaded at the same time,
using the same mechanism as the snd_seq_device module gets loaded, that
would be the optimal solution.
