Hello. I noticed that libffado was updated recently. It looks like that the new
version of libffado is incompatible with the version of jack in the arch repos.

To demonstrate the problem:

aapo ~ $ jackd -dfirewire -r192000
jackd 0.121.3

JACK compiled with System V SHM support.
loading driver ..
firewire ERR: Incompatible libffado version! (libffado 2.1.0-Unversioned directory)
cannot load driver module firewire
no message buffer overruns

What should be done about this? I have tried jack2 but I found it too unstable 
to be actually useful.
