What is ETA? The patch does not look bad and solves the issue. Seems 
that release of squashfs-tools are a bit slow:
4.0 2009/04
3.4 2008/08
3.0 2006/03

Latest git of archiso requires "mkinitcpio-0.6" from testing (by error, 
Aaron merge my "experimental" branch instead of "djgera") [#1]
otherwise you need to reset to commit a2f6841c so can build against 
current [core].
