The idea was that wireguard might still be useful for the persistent
keepalive stuff. This branch becomes very cold very fast, so I don't
think it makes a difference performance wise, but if you feel strongly
about it, I can get rid of it and set a non-zero min_mtu that's the
smallest thing wireguard's xmit semantics will accept. It sounds like
you'd prefer that?
