Yep, only requires some minor adjustments in order to apply to char-misc-next.
Please repost when you can. FYI: this is needed to bring drivers/staging/unisys
out of the staging directory.

I didn't recall other users of add_uuid() but took a look anway.

do_vmbus_entry() doesn't call add_uuid() like do_mei_entry() does. However,
the vmbus code should also just simply use add_uuid(). I can do that after
this patch gets into the kernel, as it isn't absolutely necessary to fix like
do_mei_entry(). It should be a trivial drivers/hv patch to fix all
that up.
