There has never been a 'kqemu' package for Fedora. The kernel module
is not in the standard upstream kernels, and is unmaintained by the
QEMU developers with no sign of anyone caring enough to work on  it

That said our 'qemu-system-x86_64' / 'qemu' binaries should have 
kqemu support turned on should you happen to want to build the 
kernel modules yourself. It is effectively dead technology, and 
crashy & unreliable so I can't really recommend anyone try it.
