No need for manual actions, grml provides all the relevant stuff for
remastering out-of-the-box. :)

The documentation regarding squashfs is mainly interesting if you
want to build on non-grml systems or when remastering/building
older/newer grml versions. It's meant to be a reference for people
encountering any problems with building.
