There are still some tweaks we need to look at. I noticed that one as
well. We tend to be blind to some things. This one affects midi more than
audio as I understand... probably why we missed it.

As we are also a graphics distro (or trying to be) it may be worth while
configuring grub to have three options per kernel. Graphics, Audio and
Recovery. Our main idea with making threadirqs a boot option was that it
would be easier to auto build because it is then the same as the normal
ubuntu kernel (no patches required) just a different config. But, you have
pointed out another reason.
