building on armhf reveals some effects i don’t understand:
On my raspi3 with raspian and kernel
uname -a
Linux raspberrypi 4.4.38-v7+ #938 SMP Thu Dec 15 15:22:21 GMT 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux
kernelmodule&wg are building just fine an the module loads. i had no time for testing it, but it builds.

On Banana Pro with armbian an kernel
uname -a
Linux bananapipro 4.9.7-sunxi #1 SMP Thu Feb 2 01:52:06 CET 2017 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux
it’s building, but the module will not load:

sudo modprobe wireguard 
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'wireguard': Exec format error

modinfo wireguard 
filename:       /lib/modules/4.9.7-sunxi/extra/wireguard.ko
alias:          rtnl-link-wireguard
author:         Jason A. Donenfeld <Jason at zx2c4.com>
description:    Fast, secure, and modern VPN tunnel
license:        GPL v2
depends:        udp_tunnel,ip6_udp_tunnel,x_tables
vermagic:       4.9.7-sunxi SMP mod_unload ARMv7 thumb2 p2v8 

In dmesg, it shows:
[ 1404.917772] wireguard: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel.
[ 1404.919392] wireguard: unknown relocation: 102

Next i will try with bananian and 4.4 kernel.

Gruß, Alex
