The RFC doesn't mention any specific ordering for them, but it would
make sense. Reading the FreeBSD code now (which I consider a reference
implementation), it doesn't raise these notifications from
INIT_ACK/COOKIE_ECHO at all. The only trigger for SCTP_ADDR_ADDED
event is ASCONF ADD command itself. So these are extra in Linux, and
I'm afraid we got to stick with them.

Considering the error handling it already has, looks like the
reordering is feasible and welcomed. I'm thinking the temp check and
reordering is the best way forward here.

Thoughts? Neil? Xin? The assoc_id change might be considered an UAPI
breakage.

Thanks,
Marcelo
