I'm not so sure, what you mean. Are you referring to the pcspkr module?
I can't find the module you're referring to at all.

Also, pcspkr is available in all kernels:

  sudo pacman -Ql linux linux-rt linux-hardened |grep pcspkr


It might just not be loaded?
Check your /etc/modprobe.d/* (for blacklisting) and if it doesn't get
loaded automatically (which it should), you can add it to
/etc/modules-load.d/ or load it on the spot `sudo modprobe pcspkr`
