The idea/assumption is to have USB Mass storage
support enabled by default on the host platform.

So, when the device is plugged in, the USB Mass
storage is detected, and some application on the host
platform copies the drivers from the device and
installs it.

With loadable driver modules, it is quite possible
with GNU/Linux.
