It is better if there is a small team to maintain md in future since nobody
have broad/deep knowledge as Neil or Shaohua, also people in the team

Thanks, I think there are some patches in shli/md/for-next which supposed
to be merge to 4.21, could you please help to merge them to your branch?
And I suppose you will send a patch to CREDITS for Shaohua.
