Oh, by the way, you should like to move the open() call in the 
MidiPortConsumer constructor, with only O=5FWR flag, and close() it 
in destructor.
Same thing for MidiPortProducer but with O=5FRD flag.

It will works only if all /dev/midi/* devices support to be open()'d 
multiple time. The mpu401 kernel module should, I guess.
You will need to drop the O=5FEXCL flag however, which allow a third app 
to mess with *your* /dev/midi/*, which is not great.

Otherwise, you will have to keep in memory a list of each /dev/midi/* 
opened, along his MidiPortProducer and MidiPortConsumer instances so 
that the midi=5Fserver can 
close() the device after having called Release() on both instances 
working on with it.
In this case, the usage of O=5FEXCL flag is higly recommanded.
