Consider small rant about literal IO references to magic locations
hereby ranted. Especially in header files completely unrelated to the
IO function in question.

-#define __beep() asm("movb $0x3,%al; outb %al,$0x61")

Let's please not assume that every i386 implementation has a full set
of legacy PC IO hardware.
