Too bad ROS 7 doesn't support DKMS kernel modules :(

Wireguard does not need to be in the kernel, it can be implemented in a user process.

By the time we get v7 it'll be merged ;)

One of the selling points is performance. Especially on embedded devices userspace is not okay.

Most high performance packet forwarding is done in user space!

Check out VPP, DPDK and OFP

Well, that's cheating in the sense that it's accompanied by drivers allowing you to bypass the kernel stack and write a tailored userspace processing application.

It doesn't hold for a naive userspace application (such as the Golang Wireguard implementation). I'm sure you could make it fly in userspace using DPDK, but that's besides the point ;)
