Now that both is merged, mind putting that in openSUSE Factory?

We need to enable systemd services with:

list the files/dirs in:

Drop the current custom udev rule:
and use only the systemd one in /lib/udev/. It should work also for
non-systemd setups.

All the naming rules for the snd/ subdir can be removed on all recent
systems, only the GROUP="audio" is needed.

No rules files should be installed in /etc, all files from packages
belong into /lib.

The old SYSV init script:
should be linked to:
  /lib/systemd/system/alsasound.service -> alsa-restore.service
so that the init script will not be executed on systemd bootups.
