Peer names

I find identifying peers in `wg show` output by the public key to be human
un-friendly. The following patch adds an optional "alias". I am not a
kernel developer or even a competent C developer. I think there are memory
leaks here and perhaps other issues, but it does work and demonstrates the
concept. This is as far as I can take it. Is this of interest or help to
anyone who could get it across the finish line?
