Is it possible to register a new network protocol without restarting netifd?

I am trying to install WireGuard through opkg and have netifd recognize the protocol without killing the netifd process, as that can cause unexpected behavior (such as procd not respawning it for some magical reason outside the realm of my understanding).

I tried looking around the sources for it, to find some sort of signal that would force it to load up new protocols, though I haven't managed to find one. If one doesn't exist, maybe it'd be a nice addition to netifd?

Right now there is no way to hot-(re)load protocols unfortunately.


Is it worth trying to create such functionality, or would it integrate poorly with what is currently written?
