I'm running Linux in a VM on my VMWare Fusion. I want to use qemu-kvm within the Linux VM (yes, I know it's not efficient).

QEMU reports the following problem:

Could not access KVM kernel module: No such file or directory
failed to initialize KVM: No such file or directory

Edit the .vmx file within your VM image. For example, if your VM is named "Ubuntu", edit Ubuntu.vmwarevm/Ubuntu.vmx (to get into the .vmwarevm in Finder, select Show Package Contents).

Within the .vmx file, add the following line:

vhv.enable = "TRUE"

Restart the VM and you could use KVM.
