    with the help of Paul Davis i think i have found what's causing the jackd
    FP exception. It seems to be a bug in the kernel when PREEMPT_REALTIME is

    ~$ cat /proc/cpuinfo|grep cpu
    cpu family : 6
    cpu MHz : 0.001
    cpuid level : 1

    Mhz == 0.001? Hrmm. No wonder jackd was freaking out in its timing code..
    The real cpu speed is 1.2ghz.


    P.S.: Will retry with U3, to see if this persists.

    dmesg output:
