I finally got everything to work. 
Here's the recipe. 

sudo apt-get --purge remove linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils alsa-source pulseaudio
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) module-assistant alsa-source
sudo dpkg-reconfigure alsa-source
sudo module-assistant a-i   alsa-source

This leads me to suspect that there is some small inconsistency in code between the current rt kernel and alsa, which will probably get ironed out.
