I used that term for lack of knowledge of a better one. Perhaps "raw"
would have been better. I was trying to convey the idea that some,
though not all, USB sticks don't have PTs in them. Some USB sticks have
PTs in them with just one entry, which seems a waste of ROM to me,
unless one also puts boot code in there and intends to boot from it.
