Description

For context, initial analysis, and test results, see #16177.

Next steps:

  1. Verify that squashfs-tools 4.3-3.0tails4 does honor -mem consistently (I think I did already but let's be sure).
  2. Find out why squashfs-tools 4.3-11 does not honor -mem consistently, e.g.:
    1. Try to reproduce with pristine 4.3-3 changes
    2. Try reverting the 4.3-3..4.3-11 changes
    3. Try applying the patchset collected by lynxis on top of 4.3-11
  3. Report the bug, ideally with a patch attached.
