pcppi(4) was separated in two devices, adding attimer(4). Be sure
to add a config line for an attimer(4) device in your kernel
configuration, or you won't be able to set the pitch of the beep
with wsconsctl. Also, it is advised to attach both devices the
same way (i.e., both on isa or both on acpi) or the pcppi(4) device
may fail to find the attimer(4) one.
