So, I have applied (after fixing the typo in the commit title), but I
am not a big fan in fact. Indeed, the alsa-utils build system has all
the logic to install those service files, provided --enable-systemd is

Unfortunately, we completely override the alsa-utils "make install"
before since we define ALSA_UTILS_INSTALL_TARGET_CMDS.

Perhaps the alsa-utils package should be reworked to use
ALSA_UTILS_INSTALL_TARGET_CMDS, and then use post-install target hooks
to remove unwanted programs/data if applicable.

But since that was clearly a larger effort, I took your patch as-is as
it does the right thing considering how alsa-utils.mk works today.
