Well, I think the only difference is the compiler, so it would tell us
that the compiler is making a differece. If the plant kernel still gives
you xruns it tells you that some of the system stuff in gentoo is causing
you problems.

One thing that occurs is the filesystems, I think only ext[23] has been RT
tuned in 2.6, so if your gentoo system is using something else that could
be your problem.
