I think we have two issues here, prior to your patch, but I noticed
while reviewing it :-)

This array is actually not based on jiffies but on intervals instead, as
per:

sm_sideeffect.c:
                case SCTP_CMD_TIMER_START:                       [1]
                        timer = &asoc->timers[cmd->obj.to];
                        timeout = asoc->timeouts[cmd->obj.to];   <---
                        BUG_ON(!timeout);

                        timer->expires = jiffies + timeout;      <---

But more importantly, this array is actually not used for this timeout
and the timeout is sctp_transport dependant, as per:

/* Schedule retransmission on the given transport */
void sctp_transport_immediate_rtx(struct sctp_transport *t)
{
        /* Stop pending T3_rtx_timer */
        if (del_timer(&t->T3_rtx_timer))
                sctp_transport_put(t);

        sctp_retransmit(&t->asoc->outqueue, t, SCTP_RTXR_T3_RTX);
        if (!timer_pending(&t->T3_rtx_timer)) {
                if (!mod_timer(&t->T3_rtx_timer, jiffies + t->rto))
                                                 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                        sctp_transport_hold(t);

Note how on sctp_get_sctp_info() it fetches the RTO (which is T3_RTX)
this way:
	info->sctpi_p_rto = jiffies_to_msecs(prim->rto);
If we want to know how long is left for the timer to expire, we have to
read directly from it.

With git grep -A 1 TIMER_START we can confirm that [1] is never hit for
SCTP_EVENT_TIMEOUT_T3_RTX. Yet, the asoc is allocated with kzalloc(), so
I guess you were just reading -jiffies in there.

Note however that the stats rtx_data_chunks is the accumulated stats,
it's good, and that we may have multiple T3 timers running at once, with
different timeouts.

Xin, ideas on how we can fix this? I'm not sure if we can dump
per-transport info in there. Not as it is now, I guess.
