Android kernel OTG host drivers - what devices are supported?

I'm currently trying to determine what devices are supported natively in the Android kernel for USB OTG.

For instance, on most newer Linux distros, Mediatek USB VCOM drivers are supported out of the box, whereas on PC they are not. I was hoping since Android is based on a Linux kernel, I could count on these Mediatek drivers being included in the Android kernel as well.

However, I can't find any documentation on supported device drivers for Android USB OTG.

Any info or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
