No. Section 7 of the GPL says that the code must be freely[1] redistributeable 
or not distributed at all.

Even if this were not the case I would be extremely reluctant to do this. It 
would effectively mean that you would be able to distribute an armv6 qemu but 
we would not (because you have braver lawers than we do).


[1] freely = to any third party under the terms of the GPL.
