We might as well fix it directly instead. How about storing the
intermediate result in a proper uuid_t and then export it as:
export_uuid((u8 *)&msg_arg->params[1].u.uuid, &myuuid);

Does it make any difference? The file isn't shared with user space and
I need to sync the file manually anyway since OP-TEE doesn't have the
same include files.
