[Mageia-sysadm] Please remove qemu, and qemu-img from Mageia 3.

During testing of updates to qemu, and x11-driver-video-qxl,
it has become very clear that no-one could possibly be using
these packages, as they are so slow, as to be useless.

Over 6 hours to do a net install of a kde x86-64 system,
on hardware where that would normally be under 20 minutes.

There are many problems with xorg crashing, mouse pointer not
being where the pointer is shown, etc.  These bugs are described
in https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8938

Please drop these useless packages, so we don't have to test
or install security updates for them.

Thanks, Dave Hodgins
