Let me know how this turns out. 

$ ldd /usr/lib/jack/jack_firewire.so|grep ffado
ldd: warning: you do not have execution permission for
	libffado.so.2 => /usr/lib/libffado.so.2 (0xb75ac000)

so it would seem it does not need libffado-devel as:

$ rpm -q -f /usr/lib/libffado.so.2

But the permissions are indeed wrong (but they have always been like
this I think - probably the latest version of the linking routines pay
attention to that?). 

(I'm on vacation with spotty net access so I may take a bit to answer).
