Thanks to an email from Michal Seta I got yesterday (after
sending a detailed report of what was happening to alsa-devel)
I finally have usb midi working on my machine. Here's what I
got from him:

Same here. So, disconnect your midi gear from the MidiSport
till after all the modules have loaded. I have now midi in and
out working. And that would also explain why Carr had his
setup running fine and suddenly it stopped working (after he
connected everything and left it connected!).

I'll add this to the Nano HOWTO asap...
