Subject: Re: [PATCH] SCTP: Fix Protocol violation when receiving a error length
 INIT ACK

NACK.

If the INIT-ACK chunk is too short to contain the init-tag, get the 
init-tag of peer may get a unexpected value.
Such as this:
  CHUNK_INIT_ACK
   Type                             = 2
   Flags                            = 0
   Length                           = 4

So I think the better way is to set T bit of ABORT chunk and used the 
own's Tag.

Regards.
