[LEDE-DEV] Advice on filesystem for x86 (CF card)

I am playing around with an old PC Engines Alix board and I want to put 
OpenWRT on it.

For the x86 platform I see that there are two options: ext4 and squashfs.

What is the recommended filesystem to use on a CF card in this case?

I am mostly interested in knowing if it has any performance penalty in 
chosing the wrong one. I am also curious to know if either of these 
filesystems is going to destroy my CF card faster than the other.
