You want to route the pcm playback into an input in ardour, right?
To do this, you need to enable the Monitor option in jackd, and
then a bunch more ports will show up.

The other alternative (other than the monitor trick i mentioned
above (be careful about feedback)) is to get the LS guys to implement
a master bus internally and expose it as another pair of jack ports.
