Don't worry about it.  The guspnp driver was bound to the first
logical device on your GUS PnP card; the other logical devices (all
those 'not configured' lines you see) aren't needed.  Those other
logical devices are IDE (no PnP driver), game port (joy* at isapnp?),
OPL3 FM synth (no driver), and MPU401 MIDI port (no driver).

Gravis may have screwed up in one respect: PNPxxxx IDs are not
supposed to be used to identify logical devices, they are meant to be
used to indicate compatibility only.  Do you have the line

joy* at isapnp?

in your kernel config?  If so then Gravis did screw up, otherwise
you'll have to add that line before we can be sure.
