Similar, I was looking forward to squashfs-lzma to use it on our
distribution's installation/live medium. I once digged into the openwrt
patches and failed. Now I tested your patches (on top of 2.6.30.9) +
userspace from CVS patched with lzma 4.65, it's working flawlessly. With
lzma, our live cd image's size decreased from 820mb to 692mb.

Thanks a lot for your work
