There is no plan for having IBM maintaining it.

Currently IBM takes RDMA support from SLES and RHEL. So the
question is when those distros will stop supporting it (that is,
when they will remove it). Or if the distros support it even longer.
IBM will talk to SLES and RHEL to find that out.

Thanks for pointing at that!
