All code in the kernel is supposed to abide by a minimal quality standard. The Android and Microsoft drivers were part of the staging tree, i.e., they were supposed to be improved until they could be moved into the kernel proper. This did not happen.
The AmigaFFS driver is maintained. There isn't much maintenance because it hasn't changed much; it needs to change only to follow kernel API changes.
