Pedro Sousa is my team member and has been working in Unipro/UFS Synopsys
drivers for almost 2 years.

His work has been mainly internal, and now our goal is to start using the
mainline DWC UFS driver I submitted 2 years ago in our regular activities,
update and maintain it effectively as we are doing in other titles.

Currently I am Pedro' manager, and in my opinion he has the right experience for
this step and that is why I am suggesting to transfer Synopsys driver
maintenance from me to him.

Yes, I am aware and Pedro is perfectly capable of doing that, and for that
reason I am suggesting him as the right person to maintain Synopsys UFS driver.
