IMHO, we should apply the patch to Fedora regardless of whether upstream
think its the right long term approach. We need to have i386 qemu binary
functional for release, even if that means carrying a temporary hack of
some kind.

I wrote extensive docs about configuration in the QEMU docs. Unfortunately
they don't publish the docs from 'tip'  SVN online, but they're in the
RPM we build

That isn't hard. The patches were merged in upstream QEMU 'tip' immediately
after 0.10.x branched, so they will trivially apply to 0.10.x branch. I'll
be surprised if there's any failed patch hunks.
