[linux-audio-user] Which kernel for low latency and kernel 2.6.1-mm# problems

Thanks everyone.   It does start to look like a CPU scheduler problem.

Other possibilities are that

a) Jack is doing something unusual and is triggering some bug in 2.6
   which causes the kernel to go into an extended sulk.  Or

b) Some change in 2.6 is triggering a bug in Jack, causing Jack to go
   into an extended sulk.

Question: have these problems been observed with other audio apps?  With a
similar severity and frequency?

Maybe Jack could switch UIDs and drop privileges after acquiring rt policy?
