I am using Ubuntu provided EC2 AMI for Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 LTS 64-bit and it doesn't come with support for SquashFS built in.
Is there a way to add support, so I can mount a SquashFS filesystem?

Ubuntu not installing showing msg

-udevd: worker unexpected return with status 0*0100
-undevd: worker failed while handling '/devices/virtual/block/loopO'
I'm trying to modify a firmware file by unsquashing it, editing my files and squash it again. But I got problems with the device which does not accept the file because of different squashfs types (as I suppose).
Phoronix: SquashFS Getting Major Performance Enhancements
SquashFS is commonly used by Linux distributions as a compressed read-only file-system commonly used by the Live CD/DVD/USB versions of distributions like Ubuntu, Arch, Fedora, Debian, etc. There's some performance improvements to be merged into the Linux kernel that will make SquashFS even faster.
Is it possible to use a SquashFS filesystem as an LXC rootfs? I can mount an ext3 image as a rootfs just by setting lxc.rootfs to the filename, but if it's any other type of image, lxc-start just says that it can't mount an ext3 filesystem.
