It seems like the crux of the issue is that if they disable AVX2
instructions, they need to make this known in the CPUID. Otherwise the
operating system will assume it's there when it isn't.

See the attached tarball. Compile the kernel module in there and load
it BEFORE WireGuard. You might have to manually unload wireguard for
this to work: "rmmod wireguard && insmod ./avx2disabler.ko && modprobe
wireguard", for example. It should disable avx2 inside the kernel,
solving the issue.
