Even on x86 we have a separate partition for /boot. I consider it best
practice to separate the filesystem of the kernel part from the actual
root filesystem of OpenWrt, so users have the option of resetting their
system state to default without reflashing.
Using squashfs+jffs2 even on a block device also has the advantage of
being significantly more robust than ext4 wrt. power loss during
filesystem writes.
