If there a good reason for the following during the build process?

dd if=[...]/build_dir/target-x86_64_musl/linux-x86_64/root.squashfs of=[...]/build_dir/target-x86_64_musl/linux-x86_64/root.squashfs.new bs=4294967296 conv=sync

The use of bs=n where n is very large will exhaust the memory on the
build host. Shouldn't we use something like bs=m count=o, where m * o = n?
