FWIW, I've been running tests on squashfs during the last few months, on
various platforms (32/64 bit, little/big endian, forgiving/notforgiving
unaligned accesses). I admit not having tested the latest squashfs version on
all of them, as some are partially broken due to the current merge window
churn.

And I've kept a close eye on all changes in the squashfs git repository since
the last formal review on lkml.
