I understand.

So, the cast is simply wrong there. Can you add a comment above that cast to
explain that and make it is marked as FIXME? Because there is no guarantee that
internal Linux types can be 1:1 mapped to the ABI of something.

What you need, perhaps, is a middle layer function that will copy u64 data
to uuid_t or so. Also, u64 is not an ABI type, why the respective __uXX
variants are not in use?
