sorry to dredge this thread back up from the archives... shows someone trying to build wireguard
against the debian 8 ("jessie" aka "oldstable") 3.16 kernel saying that
they needed a similar patch to make the kernel module build.

I know that debian's kernel team does backport a lot of fixes to our
supported older kernels, similar to older releases of RedHat.

i'm asking over on #debian-kernel (on OFTC) to see whether there is some
that we can use for jessie.
