Considering that in the alsa-utils init script it states that it 
requires the $syslog before it starts ($syslog is provided by sysklogd) 
and sysklogd starts after alsa-utils, I would imagine that we have two 
possible situations:

1. alsa-utils doesn't really require $syslog to start before. Then 
#Required-Start should be modified to be followed by the real scripts 
that should start before if any.
2. alsa-utils requires $syslog to start and it is misplaced. Then one 
solution could be to change alsa-utils from the /etc/rcS.d symbolic farm 
to the /etc/rc2.d with an order above sysklogd.

Does this make any sense?
