This kernel finds my sound card but exhibits the interrupt holdup
problems. Once again, alsaplayer runs fine if I move the mouse.

Probably you are right and this is all caused by the performance
patches. To me this is all very strange. If I download a straight
kernel.org kernel everything works fine, at least when
compiled under Gentoo. Possibly I should do the same thing here to
ensure it's not some weird library issue, etc. As background, I did
try a Con Kolivas kernel based on but ith the patches he
supplies and I did not have this sort of problem. (I had others like
Jack disconnecting very easily though...)
