Adding the PPA should achieve the necessary thing.

qemu-linaro is the name of the source package: the generated binary
packages you need are called qemu-kvm (from the main archive) and
qemu-user-static (from the PPA).  However, the dependencies for
linaro-image-tools should pull these in automatically.

What's the exact problem you're seeing when trying to install?

What output do you get from apt-cache policy linaro-image-tools ?
