Jason asked me to chime in with my experience running the kernel module
on an Android ROM so far.

I've been running the WG kernel module in a self-built LineageOS 14.1
ROM for a LeEco LePro3 (zl1) device for about a month now. I haven't
been using the GUI userland tool, just the wg/wg-quick command line

Very pleased so far! Both the performance & battery life are markedly
better than with OpenVPN (no surprises there). No stability problems or
other weirdness to report.

Looking forward to trying out the manifest approach to building a WG
