Yes, it does:

lib/swiotlb.c: In function 'swiotlb_map_sg_attrs':
lib/swiotlb.c:873:11: error: 'struct scatterlist' has no member named 'dma_length'
lib/swiotlb.c:879:5: error: 'struct scatterlist' has no member named 'dma_length'
lib/swiotlb.c: In function 'swiotlb_unmap_sg_attrs':
lib/swiotlb.c:907:42: error: 'struct scatterlist' has no member named 'dma_length'
lib/swiotlb.c: In function 'swiotlb_sync_sg':
lib/swiotlb.c:937:11: error: 'struct scatterlist' has no member named 'dma_length'

Yep, that's the one.

OK
