The saffire 6 is not working on linux at the moment, at least not with 
the distributions i've tried. I spoke to some focusrite folks on the 
music fair in frankfurt some weeks ago and they confirmed that it is not 
working with linux atm, but they did not know if that will change. I got 
the hint from one of their developers to use the firewire-based saffire 
devices, which may work with the latest ffado driver.
Well, i'm recording now with OS X and a saffire 6.
