Out-of-tree kernel modules

How we had it in postmarketOS
For a short time, we also had the out-of-tree kernel module for wireguard working in postmarketOS. Eventually, this became too much maintenance effort and it was dropped. But for the record, here is how it was done:
* a [ wireguard-postmarketos-stable] package (which worked only with linux-postmarketos-stable)
* a [ kernel-scripts] package, which provides the "kernel scripts" for the right architecture, which are necessary to build the out-of-tree module (note that the <code>[ "$type" != "application/x-sharedlib" ]</code> bit from the patch had to be updated a few times afterwards, but the PR description explains in detail why the package is needed, that's why there's a link to the original PR.)
