=======================
Squashfs is a compressed read-only filesystem for Linux.
It uses zlib/lzo/xz compression to compress files, inodes and directories.
Inodes in the system are very small and all blocks are packed to minimise
data overhead. Block sizes greater than 4K are supported up to a maximum
of 1Mbytes (default block size 128K).

Squashfs is intended for general read-only filesystem use, for archival
use (i.e. in cases where a .tar.gz file may be used), and in constrained

Saying Y here includes support for reading Squashfs file systems
compressed with LZ4 compression. LZ4 compression is mainly
aimed at embedded systems with slower CPUs where the overheads
of zlib are too high.
LZ4 is not the standard compression used in Squashfs and so most
file systems will be readable without selecting this option.
