Ouch. Please note that there were no changes in the alsa kernel modules
or the kernel itself. The change that could be triggering the problem is
a change in the default priority of jackd itself (62 instead of the
default 20). You could try changing that in qjackctl before starting
jack. Obviously I did not see this in my tests here... arghhh....

Hmmm, that should have no consequences, the rtirq script is meaningless
in the stable kernel as there are no separate processes and schedulling
priorities for the interrupts. A newer/better version I just got from 
Rui is in the works.
