Here is actually another problem, I'm still thinking how to fix it.

Now sctp_mtu_payload() returns different value depending on
net->sctp.udp_port. but net->sctp.udp_port can be changed by
"sysctl -w" anytime. so:

In sctp_packet_config() it gets overhead/headroom by calling
sctp_mtu_payload(). When 'udp_port' is 0, it's IP+MAC header
size. Then if 'udp_port' is changed to 9899 by 'sysctl -w',
udphdr will also be added to the packet in sctp_v4_xmit(),
and later the headroom may not be enough for IP+MAC headers.

I'm thinking to add sctp_sock->udp_port, and it'll be set when
the sock is created with net->udp_port. but not sure if we should
update sctp_sock->udp_port with  net->udp_port when sending packets?
