Mainly because the kernel already has one perfectly good virtualization 
interface. There's very little motivation to add another incompatible one, 
especially when the implementation is known to be fundamentally flawed, and 
probably insecure.

If you really want to get it merged I suggest modifying kqemu to use the kvm 
interface, augmenting the kvm interface if necessary.
