sysupgrade doesn't report bad blocks on upgrade

I'm using the EFF Open Wireless firmware, and one of their developers encouraged me to report this upstream here.

My hardware has lots of bad blocks, including in /rom, yielding dmesg output like this:

[ 584.835937] SQUASHFS error: Unable to read page, block 74a4c6, size 150f8
[ 585.824218] SQUASHFS error: xz_dec_run error, data probably corrupt
[ 585.832031] SQUASHFS error: squashfs_read_data failed to read block 0x7add3e
[ 585.835937] SQUASHFS error: Unable to read fragment cache entry [7add3e]

Yet, sysupgrade completes without error and reboots. Shouldn't it discover issues like this?
