Subject: [PATCH 2/3] af_rxrpc: Prevent RxRPC peers from ABORT-storming one
 another [ver #3]

From: Tim Smith <tim@...ctronghost.co.uk>

When an ABORT is sent, aborting a connection, the sender quite reasonably
forgets about the connection.  If another frame is received, another ABORT
will be sent.  When the receiver gets it, it no longer applies to an extant
connection, so an ABORT is sent, and so on...

Prevent this by never sending a rejection for an ABORT packet.
