    With L2, 1:3, max_sectors_kb=256, and the above change, the performance
    is truly amazing. Over 20 million interrupts, on a 600Mhz machine, the
    worst latency I was able to trigger was 46 usecs. There does not seem
    to be any adverse affect on any aspect of the system.

    This looks like the perfect setup for a DAW.
