If you are using a particular yocto release, it is true that the
default kernel for
the qemu machines in a given kernel version. If you want a tested, newer
kernel, you can always just update to the latest (1.4) release and you'll have
your choice of 3.4 and 3.8.

But that's if you want a yocto kernel. You are free to follow the docs (check
the yocto site for the kernel and kernel dev manuals) or use an example
recipe (that you'll find in various layers) and create your own custom kernel
recipe and board configuration. You can target those at any kernel version
you want (and then support/get it working in your project).
