The uuid_le type is used only in MEI ABI, do not advertise it for others.
While at it, comment out that UUID types are not to be used in a new code.

If you confused by acrn user of the uuid_le type, the patch to fix that
is pending for v6.2 as well 1dbb4f0235a4 ("virt: acrn: Mark the uuid
field as unused"). Nevertheless this patch doesn't break the things and
hence can go independently to the respective tree.
