uuid: hoist uuid_is_null() helper from libnvdimm
Hoist the libnvdimm helper as an inline helper to linux/uuid.h using an auxiliary const variable uuid_null in lib/uuid.c. [hch: also add the guid variant. Both do the same but I'd like to keep casts to a minimum] The common helper uses the new abstract type uuid_t * instead of u8 *.
