thanks for the report and testing.

That's something I cannot reproduce. Formating a 10G partition with ext3
took around 5.6 sec for me with a installed CRUX 2.4 and 2.5, the same
time for formating with a booted test3.

The supplied kernel config is the one we are using for the iso, you have
to apply the squasfs patch to the kernel sources in order to use it. But 
indeed not very useful for a "normal" kernel.
