I'm glad you got it working, but it is too bad you had to give up on Gentoo. To be honest, I don't think it was a kernel configuration problem, but then again, I don't have any prime suspects either. You could always try tweaking the Kubuntu kernel and see if that gets you the audio and boot performance you need.
I had the same problem with my gentoo laptop when I upgraded to 2.6.20-gentoo-r7 kernel. My wifi is: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection and I use ipw3945 driver.
Now it works fine, the problem was, that I had to compile all the IEEE80211 stuff into the kernel (not as modules), ie this: <*>, not <M> option.
Thanks for posting that bit of info. Prior to compiling into the kernel did you notice if the modules were all loading? The reason I'm asking is that I've always been compiling the ieee80211 stuff as modules since I switch between bcm43xx and ndiswrapper and I've never had any trouble. However, this could easily fall into the "Your milage may vary" dept.
The appropriate modules were loaded as modules, but I made them part of the kernel ie. * vis a vis M. The only thing I didn't do was copy over the system map file. There was no such explanation in the Gentoo handbook, so I had never done it, but I never found a good guide to do it on the internet, so I didn't bother.
I'm fairly certain I'm going to switch to Ubuntu Studio when it comes out though. I'm very happy with the simplicity of kubuntu, but it lacks the performance for audio I need.
INTERESTING FACT: without the RT kernel, Gentoo's latency got to 42, with Kubuntu, it was 43ms. Not that bigga difference.
