RHEV supports SMBIOS, but the propsed solution to

64-byte strings in the normal case, floppy was seen as larger, easier,
and less likely to collide with RHN).
Not quite right - floppy or file injection VDSM hooks is what the RHEV
team is proposing for user data.
The deltacloud instance ID (i.e. the VM UUID) is available in SMBIOS by
default in RHEV guests.
