Hello Tunnelerz,

Again I'm having trouble to compile the newest Wireguard DKMS module for
the wonderfully frankensteined OpenVZ / Virtuozzo 7 kernel.

The problem occures when updating the wireguard-dkms package

As far as I understand this comes from the fact that
"ipv6_dst_lookup_flo" is not available in some kernels but is in others
and obviously it is used wrong here.

So I fixed this using the following workaround:

export VERSION='1.0.20210124';
yum install -y wireguard-dkms;
echo '#define ipv6_dst_lookup_flow(a, b, c, d) ipv6_dst_lookup(a, b, &dst, c) + (void *)0 ?: dst' >> /usr/src/wireguard-$VERSION/compat/compat.h;
dkms build wireguard/$VERSION && dkms install wireguard/$VERSION;
modprobe wireguard

wireguard, 1.0.20210124, 3.10.0-1127.18.2.vz7.163.46, x86_64: installed

I think the culprit is in
and following

These conditions do not match for the OpenVZ systems as they have a
3.10.0 kernel and are RHEL based. I suggest an additional check like


but I am not sure if this could interfere with older RHEL versions.

Feedback or good ideas very welcome :-)
