that leaves me with no clue since I don't know much about vnodes :)

/dev/music and /dev/sequencer is provided by src/sys/dev/sequencer.c so
perhaps that is in there rather than the lower layer which doesn't really
handle the vnodes.. the only VOP_OPEN is in midiseq_open() and, as per the
complaint, I don't see a VOP_CLOSE but I don't know where that should be..

if you could construct a set of commands that would produce that error
surely somebody might be able to work that out..
