I looked into getting a uuid_t.

At least for architectures where we retrieve that bit of
information from DMI tables, this is undesirable since
the interpretation of the UUID changed with DMI 2.6
(the first 3 fields are now encoded in little-endian).
This means that we wouldn't know how to print it in this
generic code.

I think that it's best if the architecture specific code
turns the UUID into the string representation.
