The only issue that I had after uninstalling Pulse Audio was in maintaining the ALSA level controls such that the settings held constant through restarts/reboots. With Pulse Audio, I could set the audio levels control(s) form the command line with alsamixer, then make those settings permanent with the alsactl store command. I can still invoke both commands with Pulse Audio removed, but the level settings no longer remain constant after a restart having issued the alsactl store command before the restart.
I know very little about Linux and am not sure how best to get around this issue.

My streaming machines all have Pulse Audio disabled since it is an unnecessary extra layer of complication.
I presume the reboot issues you are having relate to increasing the size of the kernel asound prealloc buffer?
If so, I solved that problem by having a small script executed at startup as follows:
if [ -f $LOGFILE ]; then
# Adjust playback buffer
if [ -f $PCM_ID ]; then
echo "Success: $PCM_ID ($BUFSIZE)" > $LOGFILE
echo $BUFSIZE > $PCM_ID
echo "Failure: $PCM_ID ($BUFSIZE)" > $LOGFILE
Obviously you are going to need to edit the LOGFILE destination, but I find it works pretty well when called from /etc/rc.local
