Thanks for the suggestions. It sounds like the audio interfaces are more reliably supported than the MIDI interfaces. In any event, I think I'll bring my laptop to the local music store and test it with one before buying (assuming they stock them. I'll be calling in the morning to find out.)

I've got a M-Audio 2496 (PCI) and it's well-supported on linux. The
envy24 control mixer lets you adjust everything very easily. No hiss in
my own setup.

Any ICE1712 or ICE1724 based audio interface should work like a charm. (I bought a used M-Audio Delta 1010 (PCI) early this year and haven't looked back.)

Here's a list of FFADO supported firewire devices:
