In this case the problem was the ACPI PM-Timer (CONFIG_X86_PM_TIMER) got
disabled. Re-enabling it, snd-pcsp is working fine again.

It does seem a bit off that you needs something as (relatively) modern
as an ACPI timing source (or HPET, or ...) to drive something quite as
legacy as the PC speaker, but oh well.
