HI Matt,
   Take this with a grain of salt but I'm currently running the
standard Gentoo kernel with no RT patches at 64/2 and my HDSP 9652
with no xruns on my AMD64 machine. I might suggest you get the newest
kernel.org possible and build it with no patches. If it works then
that's very easy to maintain.

Just my 2 cents worth. Good luck!
