Subject: [PATCH 2/4] sctp: Add check for the TSN field of the SHUTDOWN chunk

From: Wei Yongjun <>

If SHUTDOWN chunk is received Cumulative TSN Ack beyond the max tsn currently
send, SHUTDOWN chunk be accepted and the association will be broken. New data
is send, but after received SACK it will be drop because TSN in SACK is less
than the Cumulative TSN, data will be retrans again and again even if correct
SACK is received.

The packet sequence is like this:

Endpoint A                       Endpoint B       ULP
(ESTABLISHED)                    (ESTABLISHED)

               <-----------      DATA (TSN=x-1)

               <-----------      DATA (TSN=x)

  SHUTDOWN     ----------->      (Now Cumulative TSN=x+1000)
               <-----------      DATA (TSN=x+1)

  SACK         ----------->      drop the SACK
               <-----------      DATA (TSN=x+1)(retrans)

This patch fix this problem by terminating the association and respond to
the sender with an ABORT.
