Could you check the patch below? It makes the code path involving
with request_module asynchronous.

Subject: [PATCH] ALSA: seq-oss: Initialize MIDI clients asynchronously

The recent report showed that the initial registration of OSS
sequencer clients stuck at loading the sound modules, which involves
with request_module() at the init phase. As a workaround, call the
registration part asynchronously. (And, this is a better approache
irrespective of the hang fix.)
