Thanks to excellent work by Gebi the squashfs-lzma issue for the new kernel could be solved. Now I'm proud to be able to announce a full-featured kernel 2.6.35-grml which is available from the Grml grml-testing repository.
grml-live 0.11.0 is available as well, featuring support for kernel 2.6.35-grml. The new squashfs-lzma patches in kernel 2.6.35 aren't using the openwrt style format any longer but instead use the official on disk layout from mainline. That's why a new squashfs-tools package is required to properly support kernel 2.6.35-grml. This package is available as squashfs-lzma-tools4. All you've to do to get a kernel 2.6.35-grml based live system is upgrading to grml-live >=0.11.0, install squashfs-lzma-tools4 and grml-live will take care of the rest automatically for you. For further details regarding the current state of squashfs-lzma in Grml please have a look at the official grml-live documentation.
BTW: The current daily ISOs feature the new kernel version already, so give it a shot while it's hot! :)
