There is no "low latency" patch for 2.6.x. Most of the stuff has been
incorporated into the base kernel (I do add a few things that have not
made it there yet). So there is nothing to enable, it is always runnning
with low latency. 

The "capabilities" patch is no longer necessary as well. That
functionality (running jack with realtime scheduling as a non-root user)
is provided by a loadable kernel module (realcap). 

[Sorry, I have not yet written 2.6.x specific instructions in the
install guide]
