There's still some gplv2-only code in qemu, iirc.  As such, you can't
use gplv3 code at all since the licenses are incompatible.
gplv2-or-later is not a problem.

I seriously doubt it would prevent being included in linux
distributions.  The linux kernel, the thing that everybody says makes
linux linux, is gplv2-only right now.
