The duplication with sctp_setsockopt_nodelay() is quite silly/bad.
Also, why have the 'true' hardcoded? It's what dlm uses, yes, but the
API could be a bit more complete than that.

Like for the other patch, this one could build on David's patch, do
the ternary check before calling sctp_setsockopt_nodelay and then move
sctp_setsockopt_nodelay to the header, or something like that.
