Actually, I learned that the AWE64 is looking for "generic/mpu401/v2" !
I did a test, and after changing it to v2, it worked.  I've never seen anything 
that refers to a 'v2' version of the mpu401 module, so I'm wondering what the 
difference is.  It is not in the 'midi_driver.h' header.   The only thing 
suspicious is the 'port' debug output of the R5 module:

awe64: mpu401: open returns 0 / 0x00a9a428
mpu401: reset MPU401
mpu401: enable UART mode
port cmd ack is 0
port = 60347010
<Played a note>
awe64: midi_interrupt_op() done 

Maybe 'v1' uses a buffer, and 'v2' must use a port to store data. 

>Did you see your create_device() called by the AWE64 driver?

Now it works, but I haven't hooked up my interface to see if I get any output.  
I doubt it will work, since I don't know anything about using a port at this 
point.  I kinda doubt that many drivers are using the 'v2' though.
