CRITICAL: Device auth is completely broken on Android 8

Gamesparks relies on this code to retrive UUID needed for device auth request:

gsstl::ifstream ifs("/proc/sys/kernel/random/uuid");
ifs >> ret;

On Android 8 (and not Android 7.1 and not Android 9), opening this file fails. Which results in UUID to be set "NO-UUID-SUPPORT-FOR-THIS-PLATFORM".

This leads to ALL users with Android 8 getting SAME UUID, and sharing the same session/saves/leaderboards/etc.

This is NUTS folks, get it together! :(
