There is no x86 virt_qemu board definition, or at least I never
submitted one. The ipxe_nic_drv provided by drivers_nic-pc alread works
on qemu AFAIR.

If really want to use virtio_pci_nic instead of ipxe_nic_drv you should
be able to add virtio nic device to qemu via QEMU_RUN_OPT in
build.conf. Then its just a matter of modifying drivers_nic-pc recipe
to use virtio_pci_nic instead of ipxe_nic_drv.
