acpi_evaluate_dsm() and friends take a pointer to a raw buffer of 16
bytes. Instead we convert them to use uuid_le type. At the same time we
convert current users.

acpi_str_to_uuid() becomes useless after the conversion and it's safe to
get rid of it.

The conversion fixes a potential bug in int340x_thermal as well since
we have to use memcmp() on binary data.

I second that.

Andy,

I much rather that you sort out uuid helpers in a way that will
satisfy the filesystem
needs (just provide the helpers don't need to convert filesystems code).

The only reason I took a swing at hoisting the xfs uuid helpers is
because it didn't
seem like your proposal was going to be posted soon or wasn't going to satisfy
the filesystems use case.

My opinion now, is that your suggestion is probably much closer to the real deal
than mine.

IMO, you should acknowledge that the common use case for filesystems is
to handle an opaque char[16] which most likely holds a uuid_be and you
should provide 'neutral' helpers to satisfy this use case.

The simplest would be to typedef uuid_t to struct uuid_be and to name 'neutral'
helpers' uuid_cmp/uuid_copy(uuid_t *, uuid_t *), similar to my proposal.

I think with this semantic change, our proposals can reach common grounds
and satisfy a wider group of users (i.e. filesystem developers).

Christoph also suggested a similar treatment to typedef guid_t to
struct uuid_le.
I don't know the use cases enough to comment on that.

Cheers,
Amir.

It's not jut neutral, it's the right thing to to.  The Apollo / DCE
uuids (later also specified in RFC 4122) are big endian, so we should
use the name there.

> Christoph also suggested a similar treatment to typedef guid_t to

Exactly.  The whole idea of "little endian UUIDs" comes from the
Wintel world, and if you look at the relevant specs they are almost
exclusively referred to as GUIDs.

The magic XFS and AFS types for specific interpretations of one of
the RFC4122 formats don't really help, but I'll just send a patch
to kill them off for XFS ASAP to at least get that out, and we
probably should revert at least

"afs: Move UUID struct to linux/uuid.h"

That moved the AFS mess to common code as a start, and then
also clean up the way we generate random UUIDs, where we currently
have le helper, a be helper and then also generate_random_uuid
just to confuse the heck out of people.  With no description of
either of them.

Dan, it's a typo. In this patch it should be just ..._cmp(), which is
already a part of API.

Amir, just to be clear. This patch can be applied without any addons to
an existing API. Above is just a typo due to rebase in my tree. I will
replace it to just uuid_le_cmp().

We may go this way. But I wouldn't prevent current users of uuid_le to
continue using it without conversion (it may be done case by case after
we settle an API)

So, summarize what Christoph said it will look like

typedef uuid_be uuid_t;
typedef uuid_le guid_t

uuid_cmp() / uuid_copy() / uuid_to_bin() / etc
guid_cmp() / guid_copy() / guid_to_bin() / etc

Correct? Christoph?

That looks right to me.

To complete the picture for folks not cc'ed on my patches,
xfs use case suggests there is also justification for the additional helpers:

uuid_is_null() / uuid_equal()
guid_is_null() / guid_equal()

Cheers,
Amir.

The is_null is useful and I bet we'll find other instances.  I'm
not sure _equals really adds much value over the existing _cmp
helpers, but on the other hand they are so trivial that we might as
well add them.

The other thing XFS has is uuid_copy.

Exactly. The fact that not only xfs used the same helper name
(drivers/md/md.c) suggests that it useful.

Andy already listed uuid_copy.

Thank you everyone who gave a tag to this.

I'm going to split and rebase on top of Christoph's branch
http://git.infradead.org/users/hch/vfs.git/shortlog/refs/heads/uuid-type
s

followed by changing types and API calls accordingly (without changing a
logic!).

So, I would like to keep tags in place. If there is any objection, speak
up now!
 
Thanks!
