fails to compile on debian jessie kernel with:

/home/hlauer/kernel/linux-3.16.7/drivers/block/nbd.c: In function ‘nbd_send_req’:
/home/hlauer/kernel/linux-3.16.7/drivers/block/nbd.c:323:37: error: invalid type argument of ‘->’ (have ‘struct bio_vec’)
      nbd->disk->disk_name, req, bvec->bv_len);
/home/hlauer/kernel/linux-3.16.7/drivers/block/nbd.c:47:46: note: in definition of macro ‘dprintk’
  if (debugflags & (flags)) printk(KERN_DEBUG fmt); \
/home/hlauer/kernel/linux-3.16.7/scripts/Makefile.build:263: recipe for target 'drivers/block/nbd.o' failed

Replaced  "bvec->bv_len" with "bvec.bv_len", now it compiles at least.
Why did this bugfix not made his way upstream (especially as this timeout issue is a blocker for mirroring) ?

Many thanks for working on this,
