Good!, the only problem for doing automatic builds is that in _random_ 
cases squashfs image of "overlay" is created corrupted (from the same 
data) :(
I experimented this many times, and the way to test if all is good is: 
or doing a boot, or mounting the squashfs image on read some files.
I can remember that also tested if the problem persiste with mksquashfs 
-processors 1 but the problem still persist.
