I thought this was unlikely, but a bit of searching reveals that there
are people doing this, eg:

http://gumstix.ecs.soton.ac.uk/wiki/index.php?title=Qemu
http://docwiki.gumstix.org/Gumstix_emulation_for_QEMU
http://www.bitmux.org/qemu.html

Of course, because Gumstix is ARM-based you won't be able to use
acceleration (KVM).  Plain QEMU seems like it will work.  Libvirt
won't know about the non-standard QEMU parameters (like -pflash) so
it's best to just use the qemu-system-arm command directly.

For help you should go directly to the resources suggested above.
