None Clean resource allocation is hard

Re: More Working now, but one last question (Jason M. Sullivan)

The drivers try to avoid clashes with known devices, but the Linux
kernel currently does not make this particularly easy.  If you have a
fairly recent PCMCIA package and compile it with PnP BIOS support
enabled, it will generally do a better job of this, because the BIOS
may know more about the resources used by your devices than the Linux
kernel.  However, PnP BIOS calls cause problems on some systems, so I
don't enable this by default.

You should exclude the MIDI ports if the PCMCIA drivers are trying to
reuse them.
