you need to remap the kerns hash keys as well as ligatures hash keys O 
chained chars too

Anyway, in the next context distribution upload (context also ships with 
a plain variant) I have added a loader script. If you use luaotfload you 
probably have to wait for an update at their end. The luatex-plain 
format that ships with context can do this then:

\font\foo=file:luatex-plain-tfm.lua:tfm=csr10;enc=csr;pfb=csr10 at 12pt

\foo áäčďěíĺľňóôŕřšťúýž fiets ff ffi


(It uses a few helpers from the existing font code, like cached loading 
and glyph names to unicode mapping using the enc file which saves 
resources and is also more generic than hard coded font vectors. It's 
still a pitty that these csr fonts don't come as a full package like plr 
which has afm files too; in which case the regular afm/pfb loader could 
be used instead. I only tested csr10.tfm / csr10.pfb / css.enc as I 
don't want to install the whole lot.
