Add comments to clarify what the filesystem UUID means in FAT context (refs: 15988).

Depending on the tools, it has a different name: mlabel documentation
calls it the "serial number", mkfs.vfat calls it the "Volume ID", and
from Linux/udev's perspective it's the filesystem UUID. Let's avoid
future confusion by documenting all those names wherever we manipulate
this value.
