I don't have internal fx devices, so I'm scrambling to find a command to
help see what * thinks is up/down. Can you restart asterisk with
asterisk -vvvc, convince the card to crash, and see if it generates anything
then? (If you've done this already, just say so.)

Sorry, I should have asked explicitly for what I wanted to see. Can you
paste the contents of /proc/interrupts in your reply?

The notable thing here is, your interrupts may move around when you take
this card out. Your other * problems may get better or worse when this
happens. There ought to be a better way to manage interrupts, but apart from
taking boards out and trying them in varying orders, I don't know what it

If you do take the sound card out, can you(just for fun) post the
/proc/interrupts before and after?
