The fix doesn't work for UUIDs of a Windows file system. blkid uses always UUIDs in upper case for these file systems. So it fails because the fix converts all UUIDs in lower case.

IMHO short UUIDs (length <= 16) should be always converted in upper case because short UUIDs are only UUIDs of a Windows file systems.

It can affect also systems without Windows because the EFI partition has a Windows file system (vfat).

In my case it fails booting into a loopback device(ext4) on a Windows file system (ntfs).

Please fix your patch. Thanks.
