I think use_dma would probably be even more confusing, since it isn't
using dma.

It's a flag indicating if the device has the capability of doing dma.
It's really a block version indicator, except that the blocks weren't
given different versions, but instead given a name based on the DMA.

I wonder if is_dma_capable would be better.
