this is just to bring the story to it's end: after finding the patience
to read all the valuable hints on ffado.org and doing some tweaking I
now have a fine and stable running system - the Focusrite Saffire Pro10
is really a great deal.
Also the IRQ-sharing issue is solved by disabling the NVIDIA driver.
Thanks a lot again for all your comments,
