'Plain' in this context means that we don't store the filesystem on the
binary target in a single file like filesystem.squashfs or filesystem.jffs2
and mount it using loopback devices - we just use the filesystem "straight".

You seem to be building a usb-hdd binary image, which implies using a FAT16
or FAT32 partition for the binary image. This obviously breaks when trying
to copy a filesystem onto it which is case-sensitive, supports symbolic
links and block devices, etc. :)

(ie. This will never work, unless you resurrect UMSDOS or something)
