[Buildroot] Kernel building & patching

Hi, I would like to have my kernel built by busybox, which I enabled
(under a strange config option named "board support") : This allows me
to automatically put modules to the generated root filesystem.
However, I'd like it generate a squashfs root, so I must either :
- patch the kernel to support squashfs to use modules (but I haven't
found a way to do this and keep your patches when you make clean,
- build a static module, which fails because the building script seems
to call depmod unconditionnally
- or use cramfs (which is in vanilla, but I'd prefer squashfs)
Which solution is the "right" one / would you recommend ?
By the way, what is the correct svn upgrade path ? I'm genrally forced
to do a make dirclean (which fails with ccache but cleans somewhat
the mess) then make clean then make each time I svn up, is that the
right way ?
