ar71xx: re-enable squashfs for nand targets

Hi. Could you please revert r31027 ? Are there any reasons for disabling squashfs by default for ar71xx nand boards that I am not aware of? I was successfully using squashfs on such boards (eg mikrotik). yaffs/jffs2 lacks of firstboot functionality which is useful for some tasks. Unfortunately in current trunk squashfs images won't boot until you manually edit kernel_menuconfig.

Using squashfs on NAND flashes is not reliable, because the squashfs driver does not handles bad-blocks.
