Subject: [PATCH net v2] sctp: linearize early if it's not GSO

Because otherwise when crc computation is still needed it's way more
expensive than on a linear buffer to the point that it affects
performance.

It's so expensive that netperf test gives a perf output as below:

v1->v2:
 - Fixed changelog referencing other kernel, spotted by Daniel Borkmann.

Please consider this for stable, as v4.7 is affected. Thanks!
