This worked great the first time, but after the next boot alsamixer showed 
a subset of the same controls (rather than no controls found) and I could 
not restart snd-fireworks-ctl-service. Is it expected that once the above 
command has been run once there are after effects? Is there a proper way 
to install it so it runs from boot? Or is that already happening but 
perhaps happening too soon before everything is settled?

I understand this is just a test for something that will become more 
permanent in the future. So I don't know what I should expect.
