[LAU] options for hard real time kernel for raring 13.04

Hey all,

I just switched to Mint Olivia 15 (based on Ubuntu Raring 13.04). I use
quite cpu-intensive puredata patches with processing of 2 live audio inputs
on a firewire soundcard through ffado and qjackctl (jack2).

Although my machine runs a low-latency kernel and it has been configured
for pro audio (I use the realtimeConfigurationScan script), I still get
xruns and sometimes qjackctl randomly hangs up making the sound to stop

Before, I used to work with ubuntu 10.04 and rt-kernel without a itch. Is
anybody still using a rt-kernel with the latest Mint or Ubuntu, or just
refining settings etc..?

if a rt-kernel is the best option, should I patch mine, since it looks like
there are no packaged rt-kernels for Raring?
Can't access Abogani ppa, and KXS kernels are available up to Precise.

thanks in advance for any hint, or suggestions about what to try!
best wishes,
