I can't find the code that processes the init_ack.
But when sctp_procss_int() saves the smaller value
in asoc->c.sinint_max_ostreams.

But afe899962ee079 (if I've typed it right) changed
the values SCTP_INFO reported.
Apparantly adding 'sctp reconfig' had changed things.

So I suspect this has all been broken for over 3 years.
