Gmane
From: Huang Ying <ying.huang <at> intel.com>
Subject: [RFC 1/2] Unified UUID/GUID definition
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 14th October 2009 06:30:05 UTC (over 7 years ago)
There are many different UUID/GUID definitions in kernel, such as that
in EFI, many file systems, some drivers, etc. Every kernel components
need UUID/GUID has its own definition. This patch provides a unified
definition for UUID/GUID.

UUID is defined via typedef. This makes that UUID appears more like a
preliminary type, and makes the data type explicit (comparing with
implicit "u8 uuid[16]").

The binary representation of UUID/GUID can be little-endian (used by
EFI, etc) or big-endian (defined by RFC4122), so both is defined.
