[PATCH] md: remove MAX_MD_DEVS which is an arbitrary limit
Once upon a time we needed to fixed limit to the number of md devices, probably because we preallocated some array. This need no longer exists, but we still have an arbitrary limit. So remove MAX_MD_DEVS and allow as many devices as we can fit into the 'minor' part of a device number. Also remove some useless noise at init time (which reports MAX_MD_DEVS) and remove MD_THREAD_NAME_MAX which hasn't been used for a while.
