This refers to the fact that the sound card's internal routing
only allows a given hardware output to be connected to one
signal source at a time. You can connect it to either the internal
mixer output or an alsa pcm output, not both at once.

Here it means that Ardour's master outputs can't be connected
to the same hardware outputs as the RME card's internal mixer,
but have to be routed to the appropriate mixer inputs instead.
