Because Vlad asked to split the patch so it gets easier to review. The
direct change was quite big.

Dave and Vlad had asked in the first review for considering using
rhashtable (ok, Dave didn't mention it by name).  We did, and it seemed
nice beside 1 issue Xin found, regarding multiple rehashing, which I'll

Said all this, I know this was your second email already against this
usage, but I have to ask, sorry: still really against it?

Initial post was with subject:
[PATCH net] sctp: support global vtag assochash and per endpoint
s(d)port assochash table
