No I hadn't. That is very useful though I needed to do 

sysctl -w dev.rtc.max-user-freq=1024

(i.e. with the -w switch)

I still had a problem when I tried to enable capabilities with the
patch for jack. When I ran jack with startjack as a normal user, it ran
for a short while then stopped (can't remember the error message now.. I
changed back to the unpatched kernel and now start jack as root). Any
hints on how to get this working would be appreciated.

But overall, I agree, 2.6 is a great step forward.
