Even if at first thought most of current /dev/midi/* devices 
are already presents at boot time, that's mandatory because hotplug 
MIDI devices exists, like the USB ones. Okay, USB midi devices 
are currently supported under R5 by a userland app/server (so no /dev/midi/* 
entries, only non-persistants MidiEndpoints), not by kernel driver(s), but in 
the future it may become the case. 
In fact, I've a usb_midi driver skeleton in stand-by at 
http://philippe.houdoin.free.fr/phil/beos/usb_midi/ someone (even me, who 
knows! ;-) ) may finish some days...
