The code can't rely on using dmidecode I'm afraid. Far too many
manufacturers / machines have SMBIOS UUID field filled with complete
garbage. eg my main server shows

  # dmidecode |grep -i uuid
	UUID: Not Settable

So if we need a host UUID, I think we need to be able to either set it in
the XML, or have it set in a per host config for the QEMU driver in libvirt.
