block: store partition_meta_info.uuid as a string
This will allow other types of UUID to be stored here, aside from true UUIDs. This also simplifies code that uses this field, since it's usually constructed from a, used as a, or compared to other, strings. Note: A simplistic approach here would be to set uuid_str[36]=0 whenever a /PARTNROFF option was found to be present. However, this modifies the input string, and causes subsequent calls to devt_from_partuuid() not to see the /PARTNROFF option, which causes different results. In order to avoid misleading future maintainers, this parameter is marked const.
