at the iem we are using the RME/hammerfall/hdsp/multiface cards with 
plain alsa (since jack turned out to be far too unreliable).

so obviously this does work.
however, you should use the latest and greatest release of pd (as for 
now: 0.38-4)
 >=0.38: as this has a rewrite of the alsa-code
 >=0.38-4: as this has fixed a bug that crashed pd when not allocating 
all available i/o-devices of your card.

apart from that the firmware-thing mentioned by others here is really 
_absolutely_ necessary.
(and unfortunately it doesn't seem to come with debian)
