      -s, --softmode
              Ignore xruns reported by the ALSA driver.  This makes JACK less
              likely  to  disconnect  unresponsive ports when running without

ASIO mode is no longer supported (or documented).

While the jackd man page is relatively complete, patches to clarify or
improve it are always welcome.
