we can't do that, as nowhere holds new_assoc, it may be already destroyed.
to dereference it (new_assoc->base.dead) will cause use-after-free panic.

I may do like this:
                err = sctp_wait_for_sndbuf(asoc, &timeo, msg_len);
-               if (err)
+               if (err) {
+                       if (err == -ESRCH) {
+                               /* asoc is already dead; */
+                               new_asoc = NULL;
+                               err = -EPIPE;
+                       }
                        goto out_free;
+               }

agree ?
