No, I did not... DKMS is my preferred way of packaging external kernel
modules. I cloned, ran make and created dkms.conf for packaging. ;)

BTW, and Arch people here? Give it at try:

Basically that's all we need. Put everything (dkms.conf, Makefile, *.c,
*.h, crypto/) into /usr/src/wireguard-$version, run

$ dkms install -m wireguard -v $version -k $kernelversion

and load the module.

We could add version handling and install target to the Makefile, but that's
optional. I will look into that the next days.
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Best regards             my address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*    Chris            cc -ox -xc - && ./x    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
