Subject[PATCH 4.14 126/237] random: cleanup UUID handling
Date
From: "Jason A. Donenfeld" <Jason@zx2c4.com>

commit 64276a9939ff414f2f0db38036cf4e1a0a703394 upstream.

Rather than hard coding various lengths, we can use the right constants.
Strings should be `char *` while buffers should be `u8 *`. Rather than
have a nonsensical and unused maxlength, just remove it. Finally, use
snprintf instead of sprintf, just out of good hygiene.

As well, remove the old comment about returning a binary UUID via the
binary sysctl syscall. That syscall was removed from the kernel in 5.5,
and actually, the "uuid_strategy" function and related infrastructure
for even serving it via the binary sysctl syscall was removed with
894d2491153a ("sysctl drivers: Remove dead binary sysctl support") back
in 2.6.33.
