Hey Hans, thanks a lot for this. I tested it on my LEDE VM running @
OVH, and this works fine with the following config:

config interface 'wan'
        option ifname 'eth1'
        option proto 'static'
        option ipaddr '52.36.x.x'
        option gateway ''
        option ptpaddr ''

Maybe we could automatically add the gateway as peer in case it is in a
different subnet than the ipaddr, so that we don't have to specify the
same address for two different options? Or is that too much assumption?

Either way:
