2012-03-07lib: reduce the use of module.h wherever possiblePaul Gortmaker
For files only using THIS_MODULE and/or EXPORT_SYMBOL, map them onto including export.h -- or if the file isn't even using those, then just delete the include. Fix up any implicit include dependencies that were being masked by module.h along the way. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>
2010-05-19Unified UUID/GUID definitionHuang Ying
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.
