I think the problem with wireguard in github issue 3790 [1] is that
wireguard requires NFPROTO_{IPV4,IPV6} "hashlimit" module and
netfilter subsystem will try to load ipt_hashlimit and ip6t_hashlimit
which are aliases of xt_hashlimit, but we have aliases along with
other modinfoinfo stripped from kernel modules with patch

It looks to me mod aliases are essential part of the module info in
this case . What do you think about restoring them by patching the
