The alsa kernel module seq-dummy aka snd_seq_dummy is missing in Arch's stock kernel.
This is neccessary to proper work in a pro-audio enviroment because it provides a Midi-thru port which is needed quite often. (we from the arch-pro-audio-scene even considered this a bug for a long time)

Please provide it with the next kernelupdate.
