[linux-audio-dev] Acceptable MIDI data rate?

I meed to communicate with MIDI devices from an embedded Linux world 
(Gumstix).  Its UARTs are cabable of:

14.7456M/16*29 = 31779
14.7456M/16*30 = 30720

MIDI spec says +-1%.  My error is 1.7%, Is this close enough?

I figure this problem can't be new, but I'm finding very little info 
about it. Some sites hint that an error of up to 3% is OK with certain 
MIDI devices.

Any advice appreciated,

darren
