1. skb_set_transport_header() and sctp_hdr() are like:
skb->transport_header = skb->data - skb->head;
skb->transport_header += offset
sh = skb->head + skb->transport_header;

2. in this patch:
sh = (struct sctphdr *)(skb->data + offset);  only

I think the 2nd one is better.

I feel it's weird to set transport_header here if it's only for
sctp_hdr(skb) in here.

As for "underlying implementation changes", I don't know exactly the case
but there are quite a few places doing things like:
*hdr = (struct *hdr *)(skb->data + hdroff);

I'd think it's safe. no?

The issue was reported when going to nf_conntrack by br_netfilter's
bridge-nf-call-iptables.
As you can see on nf_conntrack_in() path, even iphdr is got by:
   iph = skb_header_pointer(skb, nhoff, sizeof(_iph), &_iph);
It's impossible to set skb->transport_header when we're not sure iphdr
in linearized memory.
