[arch-general] Kernel Module snd_seq_midi No Longer Inserted Automatically

I'd like help regarding a problem I'm having with kernel module 
snd_seq_midi. Until sometime in March this module was being 
automatically inserted; that's no longer happening. The module is still 
present and can be manually inserted with modprobe.

I know that snd_seq_midi is part of package "linux" but I don't know 
what's responsible for automatically inserting the module. I'd 
appreciate any information as to how I can find out.

The issue may have started with my update of linux to 3.19.2-1 on March 
21. Today I updated linux to 3.19.3-1 but that didn't solve the problem.

It's also possible that the issue is related to ALSA; I updated alsa-lib 
and alsa-utils to 1.0.29-1 on March 10.

I'd appreciate any help regarding how snd_seq_midi used to be 
automatically inserted, or general information regarding how automatic 
module insertion works. Thanks.
