Fedora is hitting a similar issue https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1781863

Dec 10 10:04:06 kernel: squashfs: version 4.0 (2009/01/31) Phillip Lougher
Dec 10 10:04:06 kernel: squashfs: Unknown parameter 'errors'

I don't think squashfs ever actually supported the errors parameter
but it was just silently ignored. It turns out you could can pass
whatever nonsense you want for parameters so I don't think we can
reject parameters in the generic case
