Not unconditionally.  There is a reason why cramfs is not merged into
the kernel yet.  While its pure performance numbers (compression rate,
etc) are better, the code has its issues.  Biggest offender is the use
of bitfields, which are duplicated depending on the endianness of the
filesystem and the host machine.

YMMV, so I won't give any recommendation either way.
