It will be nice to have lzip patch for SquashFS 4.0 filesystem and zram

I plan to write a patch for SquashFS when I find the time. Sadly, patching SquashFS is not as easy as patching kmod or kexec-tools. I am very busy and it may take months for me to start writing such a patch.

My opinion is that lzip is way safer than xz for filesystem applications because of its better interoperability.
