Not sure where you saw stack traces with this sctp function in it, but
the syzkaller reports from 17 Feb 2020 are not related to SCTP.

The one on sco_sock_getsockopt() seems to be lack of parameter
validation: it doesn't check if optval is big enough when handling
BT_PHY (which has the same value as SCTP_STATUS). It seems also miss a
check on if level != SOL_BLUETOOTH, but I may be wrong here.

l2cap_sock_getsockopt also lacks checking optlen.
