We can't apply that patch, because then the test would fail with an
older squashfs tools.

We usually use the program version or other indicators to decide if our
data is usable with the programs versions, but here I notice that the
change comes from an updated git tarball that doesn't seem to change the
porgram version.

How can we distinguish the previous squashfs-tools with the new one?
