No longer terribly relevant these days but still broken and just an eyesore
mess of neglience just as I've already raised it a few days ago.  Time to
sort this.

drivers/input/misc/pcspkr.c:

#if defined(CONFIG_MIPS) || defined(CONFIG_X86)
/* Use the global PIT lock ! */
#include <asm/i8253.h>
#else
#include <asm/8253pit.h>
static DEFINE_RAW_SPINLOCK(i8253_lock);
#endif

sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp.h:

#if defined(CONFIG_MIPS) || defined(CONFIG_X86)
/* Use the global PIT lock ! */
#include <asm/i8253.h>
#else
#include <asm/8253pit.h>
static DEFINE_RAW_SPINLOCK(i8253_lock);

$ git grep -F pcsp.h sound/drivers/pcsp
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp.c:#include "pcsp.h"
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_input.c:#include "pcsp.h"
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_lib.c:#include "pcsp.h"
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_mixer.c:#include "pcsp.h"
$ git grep -w i8253_lock sound/drivers/pcsp/
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp.h:static DEFINE_RAW_SPINLOCK(i8253_lock);
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_input.c:        raw_spin_lock_irqsave(&i8253_lock, flags
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_input.c:        raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore(&i8253_lock, 
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_lib.c:          raw_spin_lock_irqsave(&i8253_lock, flags
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_lib.c:          raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore(&i8253_lock, 
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_lib.c:  raw_spin_lock(&i8253_lock);
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_lib.c:  raw_spin_unlock(&i8253_lock);
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_lib.c:  raw_spin_lock(&i8253_lock);
sound/drivers/pcsp/pcsp_lib.c:  raw_spin_unlock(&i8253_lock);

Locks are great, everybody should have their own lock!

$ find . -name 8253pit.h
./arch/powerpc/include/asm/8253pit.h
./arch/alpha/include/asm/8253pit.h
$ cat arch/*/include/asm/8253pit.h
/*
 * 8253/8254 Programmable Interval Timer
 */
/*
 * 8253/8254 Programmable Interval Timer
 */
$

Eh...

$ git grep -w PCSPKR_PLATFORM 
arch/mips/Kconfig:      select PCSPKR_PLATFORM
arch/mips/Kconfig:      select PCSPKR_PLATFORM
arch/mips/Kconfig:      select PCSPKR_PLATFORM
arch/powerpc/platforms/amigaone/Kconfig:        select PCSPKR_PLATFORM
drivers/input/misc/Kconfig:     depends on PCSPKR_PLATFORM
init/Kconfig:config PCSPKR_PLATFORM
sound/drivers/Kconfig:  depends on PCSPKR_PLATFORM && X86 && HIGH_RES_TIMERS

So the status is:

 Alpha:         There is no PCSPKR_PLATFORM so while a platform device is
                being installed no drivers will be built.  I don't know
                which Alpha platforms or even if all of Alpha should be
                doing a PCSPKR_PLATFORM so I haven't even tried to sort
                this.
 ARM:           No PC speaker supported, yeah :)
 PowerPC:       Should compile but the locking is wrong but only the AmigaOne
                platforms should be affected.
 MIPS:          Ok.
 x86:           Ok.
 All others:    No PC speaker supported

Also only the plain old IBM PC XT was using a i8253; every later system
had i8254.  So maybe this is the time for renaming the support code?
