At the moment I can't read that thread completely, since the discussion
seems to be very long.
Pardon, I didn't read and answered private mails for more than a month.
I'll do it ASAP.
Besides, I compared AVlinux 5.0.3, Kernel 3.0.23-avl-7-pae threadirqs
with Kernel 3.0.23-rt40, also PAE, but optimized to AMD, for work with
internal MIDI, using it's default JACK1 and a RME HDSPe AIO. FWIW since
editing nv-linux.h didn't help, I used the FLOSS nv driver. I run JACK1
with -Z and sample_rate=48000, frames_period=256. Clients still get lost
and there are tons of audible glitches, that are shown as xruns, so
serious audio work is impossible, the only good news is, that there's no
difference between the default threadirqs kernel and the kernel-rt.
Someday I'll report about the result, when using different versions of
