You don't need to compile kqemu into the kernel.  When I install dkms-kqemu from freshrpms, I do NOT rebuild my kernel.  I am fairly certain with Fedora's new policy for extras, there would not be much of a problem getting it added to Fedora.  For that matter, it could probably get added into the new Enterprise Extra's repository as well.  However, someone would need to volunteer to maintain the package.

Is it planned to submit kqemu to lkml for inclusion into the mainline kernel?

Never seen anyone talking about this...

if not why?

I know that

if yes any idea when? is it possible to try to get it in 2.6.24 ?

I don't know if Linus would accept it. As I said, KVM was included, although kqemu as the advantage of working in older hardware (without AMD-V or Intel equivalent virtualization instructions).
Maybe if it was possible to make merge kqemu into KVM to take the best of the two... But I don't know anything about KVM nor kqemu code...

thats the reason I  (and many other users) want to see it merged.
for ex. the fedora kernel maintainers don't want to add it until its part of the upstream kernel.
