We have never supported kqemu because that module is a third party
kernel module not merged upstream and it is generally a pain to keep
third party kernel modules working with frequent kernel updates we get
it in Fedora.  However kqemu and VirtualBox (which also requires a third
party kernel module) is available in RPM Fusion free repository and you
are free to check them out.
