[FEATURE PROPOSAL] Wireguard kernel module

The Wireguard kernel module is common across linux and some android kernels now and I think it’d be rad to get it in the e/os kernel!

There was a previous post from about 2 years ago here where most people seemed to agree it was a good idea, but nothing seemed to come of it. I can’t see any issues in Gitlab or other posts on the forum.

Wireguard already leads OpenVPN in general performance and simplicity. Adding the protocol to the kernel will theoretically increase the speed even more and give better efficiency (so better battery life) compared to the current userspace implementation.

Let me know what you think!

afaik the kmod cannot be used unless the app is granted root.
The Wireguard app will still work without it using the Golang userspace implementation.
