Just to summarize the kqemu issue. It seem that kqemu is no longer
supported after Lenny and that mainstream kqemu support disappeared
after v0.11, latest release is v0.13.0 I found and managed to compile
kqemu-1.4.0pre1 as a kernel module, and it installed into 2.6.32-5-686.
However, since I have to compile qemu-0.11.1 to get support for kquemu I
gave up. Did compile the current Debian package qemu-0 0.12.5+dfsg-2
though as a test. Is there an easy way to crate an unofficial  .deb of
the latest version 0.13.0 using the source package files from 0.12.5

Another question: Since HW support for virtualization in qemu is no
longer available for older processors, like this one,  Intel(R)
Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz, is the Xen way, like xen-hypervisor-4.0-i386 a
useful way towards a faster Hurd as guest OS?
