Stores the serialized form of
data should be
large enough. See g_variant_get_size().
The stored data is in machine native byte order but may not be in
fully-normalised form if read from an untrusted source. See
g_variant_get_normal_form() for a solution.
As with g_variant_get_data(), to be able to deserialize the serialized variant successfully, its type and (if the destination machine might be different) its endianness must also be available.
This function is approximately O(n) in the size of
