	      with 0x or x for hexadecimal values.

       --uint64
	      Set value	property of the	property to a 64-bit unsigned integer.
	      The  value  passed is assumed to be decimal unless it's prefixed

RETURN VALUE
       If setting the property succeeds, this program will exit	with exit code
       0. On errors a non-zero the program will	 exit  with  a	non-zero  exit
       code.  Note  that setting properties on the HAL device database usually
       requires	super user privileges.
