Presumably we could package the firmware separately and just unpack it
into place from a udev rule when the hardware is detected?

But first, do we actually know this is a problem?
I think you're saying squashfs loads the whole decompressed image into
memory, but my expectation prior to your mail was that it performs I/O
on the usb stick (with a cache in between).  If my intuition was right
and files only hit ram when accessed, then it seems like this is
pretty much not an issue, right?

Do you have stats on memory usage when running in a live environment?
