Thanks for pointing me to lzma. So the squashfs 3.3 on F9 is patched
to have lzma support? Good to know... after a bit of investigation, it
turns out that between 3.2 and 3.3 the squashfs project took the lzma
pactches, and forgot to mention it in the changelog. How misterious
and cute :-/

After a bit of testing, squashfs-3.2 on F9 produces a squashfs I can
mount on F7.

But the image still does not boot. Something else in the initrd must
be messing up.
