I was thinking about strncmp() here for a full line, though decide not
to push it anyhow. Those IDs is binary data, can be anything and you
have comment of what is expected here.

But I think it would be nice to create a separate definitions and make
comments there.

%8ph ?

%u ? u32 can't be negative and you basically allow it.

Ditto.


P.S. I noticed this all in old code, so, you can address my comments
in a separate patch if you find them useful.
