commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=e7f0408f496fbbfac8663c76d308b9f691e19e4a
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

Commit 3cf2782906d5 (support/testing/infra/emulator.py: update pre-built
kernels) bumped the default kernels used by the testing infra.

However, the newer armv7 kernel (at least) no longer has support for
lz4-compressed squashfs filesystems.

This breaks the squashfs test:

    Filesystem uses "lz4" compression. This is not supported
    List of all partitions:
    1f00          131072 mtdblock0
    1f01           32768 mtdblock1
    b300            2048 mmcblk0
     driver: mmcblk
    No filesystem could mount root, tried:

    Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(179,0)

Updating the kernel again is a little bit cumbersome, while fixing the
actual test is relatively trivial, so this is what we do: we switch
over to lzo, which is supported by the new kernel:

    # zcat /proc/config.gz |grep SQUA
    # CONFIG_SQUASHFS_LZ4 is not set
    # CONFIG_SQUASHFS_XZ is not set

While at it, also drop the superfluous line disabling gzip compression:
it is part of a choice, so enabling one (lzo here) forcibly disables the
others (of which gzip).
