FFADO doesn't work with the new firewire stack (called juju):

FFADO support for the new stack is far in the future:

My understanding is that if the Ubuntu 9.10 RT kernel was compiled
using the new stack (you can choose which one when you compile), FFADO
(and therefore firewire audio devices) won't be supported with this

If my understanding is correct, doesn't that make packaging FFADO in
practice redundent?

I am not a pro so not totally sure I have grasped all the issues here.
However this is the result of 3 years of owning (and in the main
failing) to get a Edirl FA-66 device to work.
