2.5.1 FlatUID Structure

A FlatUID structure is a GUID structure put into little-endian byte order. That is, FlatUID and GUID structures have the same byte order when used on a little-endian processor. However, on a big-endian processor, the FlatUID structure has the same byte order as on the little-endian machine, but the GUID structure uses big-endian format for certain fields.
