Can't we just let them get installed from alsa-utils.rpm?
And drop the current rule from alsa.rpm?

Oh, we just enable --with-systemd and install the systemd files and
udev rules unconditionally, they don't pull systemd.rpm in, the
systemd files will jsut be ignored on SYSV boxes, but the udev rule
will still be used. That should work and is how it usually works.
