    1. Use Intel Clearlinux, which has WireGuard as its native module.
    2. Use Archlinux(-based), and install linux-clear from AUR.
    3. use OpenSuse and install the kernel module for it from the OBS, following the instructions on the official wireguard site https://www.wireguard.com/install/

    4. use Mageia linux.

    5. use a portable minirouter like the ones from GL.Inet (they also have one that looks like a wifi dongle and connects on USB using standard RNDIS usb-ethernet drivers) and install Wireguard kernel module (it's probably better to upgrade to latest version of OpenWrt firmware first) and the addon to control it from the OpenWrt web interface.

    Wireguard and Bcachefs are at the top of my wishlist I've got kernels compiled with support, but I would like to install to it with a livecd. Tried making my own livecd but I don't have the time to sink into making it work yet.

    This is a little disappointing, but as long as it makes it for the next LTS kernel I'll be happy.

    True, though on Arch Linux the DKMS module has worked very well for me, and the WireGuard version included in linux-clear is always a bit old.

    Last time I checked kernel ml (initial patches sent for review), crypto maintainer didn't like the idea of this new crypto API just for the sake of it. Did anything change in consecutive patches to address that? If not, I don't think wireguard will be mainlined anytime soon.

    Edit: it seems consecutive patches are mostly focused on zinc, as most of the patch code is actually there.

    Neither DKMS nor auto-module ever bothered me.
    Incompatible sources (mod & kern) however...
