According to /boot/beos/system/add-ons/kernel/generic/mpu401 file size and 
quick look via nm and diskprobe, it support only the MPU401 UART mode, not the 
intelligent one.

So, yes, we don't really need the full documentation.
However, there is this "workaround" argument in mpu401->create_device() api 
which let me think that there is some tricks to support some MPU401 
*mostly* compatible cards out there, and to much documentation never can't hurt
