Must be my setup, as I've been testing with Ardour4.2 & jack using the 
ALSA driver and I don't see snd-bebob loaded, only snd_firewire_lib,
firewire_ohci and firewire_core.  I didn't have this issue until I'd upgraded
to 4.1 so I guess I'd successfully delayed the problem until now.

On the plus side, I've been testing this morning with the above setup
under kernel 4.1.4 on an Arch system and I have over 3.5 hours recorded of
all 16 channels from my mixer without a single xrun.  There are still some
glitches - I have to start JACK twice as the first attempt fails, and I see
dmesg errors about DMA contexts, but the second time seems to work.
