You may have reasons for following the stable book, but I would
suggest following the SVN book if you're using LFS-6.2. What version
of LFS are you using.
More importantly, are you using the hotplug package? What version of
udev are you using?

The alsa.dev script was used when hotplug and udev were installed
together. Hotplug handled dynamic devices, and it would use the alsa
script placed in /etc/dev.d. Nowadays, udev has completely deprecated
hotplug to the point where any of the dynamic actions are defined in
udev rules. But, that happened in between LFS-6.1.1 and LFS-6.2. So,
what version of LFS are you building on?
