If it's just grabbing old data, it's far better to do that with a
userspace tool which understands the ADFS layout (several exist).
The only good reason for keeping fs/adfs/ alive is if there's need to
continue to access data that lives on an ADFS filesystem and needs to
be read/written by both a RISC OS host and a Linux host.
