None of the comments below are a reason against mainline inclusion, imo.
They should get handled, but whether that happens before or after a
merge doesn't really matter.

Current verdict seems to be that these files should live in fs/squashfs/,
not include/linux/. No kernel code beside squashfs needs the headers
and userspace tools should have a private copy.

Most code uses "sb" and "inode", which I consider easier to read - if
only for consistency.

Is your "long long inode" what most filesystems call "inode->i_ino"? It
seems to be.

Most linux functions return 0 on success and -ESOMETHING on error. You
return 0 on error and 1 on success. That makes it likely for someone
else to do something like
err = squashfs_foo(bar);
Measure. Don't tune for speed until you've measured, and even then
don't unless one part of the code overwhelms the rest.
