After that first access after a re-boot, the fonts are "Hot" in the VFS cache (present in fast RAM).
Which, of course, is also true if the fonts had been read from flash rather than read from a file system in a file that was read from flash.

The only stone I can think to throw at lab126 is that they did not use squashFS but instead used the very old cramFS.
