[RFC PATCH 0/2] platform: add WireGuard support

Hi all,

After following Max's WireGuard VPN NM plugin effort [1] and reading the
follow-up discussion on this list [2], I've been spending some spare
time on non-VPN WireGuard integration.

This patchset is a very rough draft. Only querying and parsing of
existing WireGuard interfaces via genetlink is implemented. I'm a newbie
on multiple fronts here (NetworkManager, glib and WireGuard itself) so
at this point I really need feedback to see if this is going anywhere
near the right direction.

I have a few questions already:

- Is it a good idea to map `Peer` and `AllowedIP` to new NMPObjects?
  Particularly AllowedIP feels strange - it's just an addr+mask so
  there could be something more suitable already within NM.

- Should the wireguard-specific genetlink parsing be moved elsewhere,
  e.g. src/platform/wireguard/ ?
