I've get a new (used) mobo, and played with the kernel version to use. 
So far I've tested all from 3.19.0-rc5 down to 3.4.104

Those, were rt-patches available I test as rt-kernel.
Best results, I only get with the 3.4 series, all later kernels 
introduce Xruns here, sporadic, unrelated to the dsp load, even, when 
just jack is running.
I build then all with the same configuration, play a bit with 
configurations deselect hyper-threading on the latest kernels, use 
threadedirqs,  all to no avail. Only 3.4.xxx-rt kernel run absolute smooth.
So, which kernels with witch configuration do you all use?
