I have used wireguard version 0.0.20191012 on RHEL-8.0, but after
upgrade to RHEL-8.1 with kernel 4.18.0-147.el8.x86_64 dkms failed
to install to the new kernel. I am trying now to reinstall
manually compiling from tag 4.18.0-147.el8.x86_64:
sh-4.4$ git clone https://git.zx2c4.com/WireGuard
Cloning into 'WireGuard'...
Resolving deltas: 100% (8471/8471), done.
sh-4.4$ cd WireGuard/
sh-4.4$ git checkout 0.0.20191127
Note: checking out '0.0.20191127'.

HEAD is now at 7fc30dd version: bump snapshot
sh-4.4$ git checkout -b b_0.0.20191127
Switched to a new branch 'b_0.0.20191127'
sh-4.4$ cd src/
sh-4.4$ make
