    Ok....damn, y'all. It's not desktop Linux. Does it make you happy now?

    And name three actual Android phones that run an unmodified mainline kernel or will even run 5.2 with various Android tweaks. Exactly.

      I don't mind either way. Jason has good instincts, and I think WireGuard is much more useful with broader initial platform support, even at the expense of mainlining.

        Why do I get the feeling that Linus is going to tell this ass dragging dev to F off.

          Nothing is "a the expense of" anything, really. I wrote code for a different platform for a few weeks. Relax.

            Linus has shown nothing but positivity towards Wireguard and its dev.

              Also, Linux support, while not mainlined, exists from the very beginning (in a form of patches on ml at minimum). It makes sense to provide other initial ports meanwhile.

                because you have unsolved daddy issues.

                Torvalds does not give a shit about the time it takes. Whenever it's ready and good enough he will merge it.

                  Heheh, I didn't mean to say anything negative and it still goes that way. I meant to say that I appreciate it either way, especially recently since I'm working with some people who are unlikely to stop using Windows, and I'm looking forward to being able to use WireGuard to get them on our network.

                  I'm guessing the OpenBSD folks haven't come to do their own WireGuard impl. since IPSec is generally not painful on OpenBSD.

                    IPsec sucks period. As a very long time OpenBSD developer/user I would love to have something other than awful IPsec and crappy OpenVPN.
