That hasn't been true since a bit back. They decided that discover and
hotplug work well enough that /etc/init.d/alsa should no longer handle the
loading and unloading of modules. All it does now is run alsactl to
save/restore mixer settings.
It'll have to be done manually, which is an ugly process of trying to rmmod
things until you find something that something else doesn't need, whittling
the modules away layer by layer. (Or if there *is* a better way, I'm all
ears. I *miss* /etc/init.d/alsa restart.)
