That would be my preferred solution. IIRC, the kernel module was needed
(in the days of kernel 2.4 or 2.2 that is) to have a reliable timer
interrupt and lowlat IPC. It should be possible to do this entirely in
userland now, but there might be other issues I'm not aware of, we'll
have to ask Yann about it. As we'll probably meet at LAC we might have
some time to discuss it there.

Grame. (I'm just a user myself, I only provide SUSE RPMs and update
these according to my own needs.)

No, what I meant is that you'd need to follow each dotdot release of the
kernel and update the Midishare module accordingly. Not a big deal if
you follow all kernel releases anyway, but I don't have the time to do
that and neither does the Grame team AFAIK.
