yesterday I had the same problem after upgrading to latest PlanetCCRMA
kernel and alsa driver.
I have found with a load of printk that after commenting lines 1645 to
1648 of alsa-driver/alsa-kernel/pci/rme9652/rme9652.c, I can
successfully load the snd-rme9652 module and play music with jMax.
It was too late to continue debugging of this problem.
Please note that I have only tested the first ADAT and only the playback
not the capture.
But jack_lsp, qjackctl, qjackconect and jMax show the rme9652 26
playback and capture channels.

Tell me if you need more information.
