Are wireguard-tools useful without the underlying kernel module? It
didn't seem like it to me, although maybe Jason should chime in here,
as maintainer and developer of Wireguard.

The idea is to enable in-tree wireguard kernel modules on Linux 5.10
with a plan to phase out the out-of-tree module when 5.4 is taken out.
Reducing cross-repository dependencies makes it easier to accomplish.
