I have both the D90 and D40.  The High ISO noise improvement over the D40 is like night and day.  Either camera is a worthy upgrade from a feature perspective.  The 5100 is newer and may be a better bet.  I will say I reach for the D40 most of the time.  I like the smaller file sizes and the D40 image quality has a certain appeal to it righ tout of camera.  The D40's minimalist design is pretty appealing too and it's easy to get buried in the D90s menus if not careful.  I would definitely try and keep the D40 as secondary camera regrdless of what you decide to do.
