Microsoft just announced that they are open-sourcing their QUIC stack (under an MIT license).

MSQUIC is suitable for application and kernel-use (it will ship as part of the Windows kernel), so it might be usable in other kernel contexts (FreeBSD/ONTAP, Linux) as well. The amount of work needed is likely (much) less than porting another QUIC stack that is only meant for user-space use. Also, based on my testing, MSQUIC is amongst the faster and most interoperable stacks.

In short, if we wanted to do something with QUIC, MSQUIC would probably a good starting point.
