  [SRU] jackdbus produces high cpu load

Status in jackd2 package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in jackd2 source package in Focal:
  Won't Fix
Status in jackd2 source package in Groovy:
  Fix Released

Bug description:

   * Users have reported issues with high CPU load when running jackd and 
     jackdbus, causing system slowdowns

   * This newer version was backported into the Ubuntu Studio Backports PPA 
     and has shown to have success in fixing this issue.

  [Test Case]

   * Attempt to run jackd and jackdbus, jackd tends to take 100% per CPU

   * Killing jackd and jackdbus reduces CPU down to nominal levels

   * Version in Ubuntu Studio Backports PPA does not have this issue,
  same version exists in Ubuntu Groovy Gorilla.

  [Regression Potential]

   * Since jackd is used by multiple professional audio applications and
  therefore there could be potential negative impact on those

   * Although that regression potential exists, multiple users have
  reported great success when using the newer version.

  [Other Info]
   * Although not a "bug" per se, upstream developer lamented the fact that the 
version in 20.04 is so far behind. 

   * Most audio applications and plugins in Ubuntu 20.04 have been
  developed with this version of Jackd in mind.

  Original bug report:

  if jackd and jackdbus run, jackd and/or jackdbus produce high cpu load. jackd 
tends to take all availabl CPU power bringing the system to slow down 
remarkably. Killing jackd and jackdbus frees cpu and system load drops from 
100%/per CPU down to ~4% overall.
