     In fact, I'm currently using a low latency kernel, but only because 
some time ago I was testing a Behringer UCG102, and I felt (very 
subjective measuring) that it behaved better. I had never heard about 
that "threadirqs" option. What's it for? I could only find the commit 
description for it [1], and it seems it's mostly a debug option.

     Oh, that's something I really despise about rpm distros. They tend 
to ship awfully big packages with the kitchen sink, while Debian (and 
therefore Ubuntu) splits everything to its tiniest atom. Sometimes it's 
a bit too much, but usually it makes for saner and cleaner 
installations. IMHO, of course. Not pretending to start a religious war 
here O:-)
