I thought those usually end up in rpmfusion, copr or other external repos, 
rather than Fedora proper.

I'd still like to see if it is going to land upstream. Even if it ends up 
in 4.9, it'd probably be simpler to just wait and package the wg part 
when the kernel part is included with the Fedora kernel. If upstream declines 
merging it, then things would be different as we'd need to use dkms or akmod 
to make the packages easy to use.
