man: document dynamic debug trick for Linux
This comes up occasionally, so it may be useful to mention its possibility in the man page. At least the Arch Linux and Ubuntu kernels support dynamic debugging, so this advise will at least help somebody. Signed-off-by: Jason A. Donenfeld <Jason@zx2c4.com>

+.SH DEBUGGING INFORMATION
+Sometimes it is useful to have information on the current runtime state of a tunnel. When using the Linux kernel module on a kernel that supports dynamic debugging, debugging information can be written into
+.BR dmesg (1)
+by running as root:
+
+\fB # modprobe wireguard && echo module wireguard +p > /sys/kernel/debug/dynamic_debug/control\fP
+
+On userspace implementations, it is customary to set the \fILOG_LEVEL\fP environment variable to \fIdebug\fP.
