Log Message:
switch to nanotime() for 100ns resolution

Why not bintime()?

Because the UUID spec calls for a 60-bit counter of 100nsec intervals since 00:00:00.00, October 15,1582 for UUID version 1. Thus the use of nanotime(). Anything else would mean that we use a different UUID version which is not time based.
