Alright, maybe I'll give it a try that way. Previously, every time I
wanted to send things upstream for WireGuard, I'd be sure to find
other users in the tree of what I was adding, since WireGuard wasn't
ready for patchsets yet. But I guess now that some series have begun,
it's more acceptable to add APIs here and there as you described.
