Hi Jason,
sorry for sneaking into the conversation but I'm currently using
wireguard-dkms. I think deprecating it would be a bad idea: anyone who uses
a custom kernel cannot use the binary modules.
I'm currently using linux-hardened on my server (yeah, I run Arch Linux on
my personal server lol) and rely on the dkms package for the wireguard
Binary packages should probably be preferred for those who use the default
kernels, however not everyone does.
That being said I really hope WireGuard makes it to mainline soon ;)
