dkms module build fails since at least 20191226 on CentOS

Hi again,

since the last WireGuard upgrade (wireguard-0.0.20191226) the dkms
module does not build anymore. I just noticed that my CentOS box still
runs on 0.0.20191206 so it appeared to work at firs glance but actually
it just uses the old dkms module which was not overwritten by the new
installation because it failed to build.

Here is make all output:
