This compression method is also relevant for squashfs and it would be good to support it there as well.

Linux 4.14 supports Zstd as compression algorithm for btrfs. Unfortunately GRUB doesn't support this configuration, meaning that is not possible to have a Zstd compressed root without a separate /boot partition.

As GRUB supports the other btrfs compression algorithms, it would really make sense to support Zstd too.
