[PlanetCCRMA] Tascam usx2y sequence errors and jackd

I'm having problems with jackd dying when I use my Tascam US-122 on
CCRMA FC2, on a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop. The internal snd-intel8x0
module doesn't give the same problem.

Kernels 2.6.10-2.1.ll.rhfc2.ccrma and 2.6.11-0.3.rdt.rhfc2.ccrma show
the same problem.  I've seen messages on linux-audio-users which mention
using chrt to alter priorities, and I've briefly tried this under the
2.6.11 kernel without success.

The other suggestion I saw was booting with acpi=off, but I'm reluctant
to try that since this laptop quickly gets very hot without temperature
controls and cpufreqd.

So: is anyone successfully using PlanetCCRMA with a Tascam usx2y module 
and has sorted this problem out?
