As I have not released low latency kernels yet you will have to
configure one file by hand (and use the normal fc kernels for now). 

Follow the directions at the end of this post:

And you should be able to run Jack with realtime priority as a non-root
user (after changing the file you will need to logout and login again
for the changes to take effect).

That's not gonna happen (AFAIK). They don't release _any_ information
that would enable people to write drivers. No information, no drivers...
