Once I swapped the sound cards, I booted up the machine and immediately ran
into a kernel panic [1] which seems to indicate that there is a problem
with interrupt sharing.

Live and the machine ran stable again.

interrupts properly, isn't it?

on some of the asus motherboard, usually there is only one pci slot which
don't share int with other on board devices
