Fabrice did give an ok to package the old kqemu for Fedora, just didn't want
to see it offered for Red Hat's enterprise offerings. The Fedora rules about
what licenses we ship as been the barrier for inclusion.

Very nice to see the kqemu module GPL and see how further steps with
virtualization can be done for qemu in the future.
