As said above, SUSE backported WireGuard into their kernel for 15.2,
both on the OpenSUSE variant and on their enterprise distro. This is
terrific news.

I'm considering making this compat module release the last release
that supports the now-old 15.1 release. `zypper update` automatically
puts people on 15.2, as far as I can tell, and it seems like the
general path for SUSE is to update. Plus, people who tend to use
WireGuard tend to like to update.

I put this in the git repo a few minutes ago:

If anybody thinks that 15.1 support would be worth preserving for more
releases (how many?), this would be the time to speak up. I'm happy to
have my presumptions about SUSE user update habits proved wrong and to
change course accordingly.
