Hi Jason,

Could you update the installation instructions for Debian [1]?

Based on the discussion from a few months ago, and given that Wireguard
now supports Jessie's 3.16 kernel, these instructions should be added:

    For Debian jessie or stretch:
    # echo "deb unstable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/unstable-wireguard.list
    # cat <<EOF > /etc/apt/preferences.d/limit-unstable
    Package: *
    Pin: release a=unstable
    Pin-Priority: 200
    # apt update
    # apt install wireguard-dkms wireguard-tools

I have verified that the resulting setup is functional (with 0.0.20170421-2 on jessie).
