Depends what you mean. LPAE is on the list of bits we currently
hope we won't have to implement for KVM's benefit, but which we
might have to. (Basically if we start with a guest kernel not
compiled for LPAE then there's no need.) So adding LPAE on top
of the "A15-without-virtualization" QEMU system model isn't in
this planned work. If we need it it'll probably be done some time
in the first quarter of next year.
A full QEMU system emulation including the virtualization extensions
(ie what you would need to run a hypervisor inside QEMU) is not
