Race condition in the sctp_icmp_proto_unreachable function in
net/sctp/input.c in Linux kernel 2.6.11-rc2 through 2.6.33 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via an ICMP
unreachable message to a socket that is already locked by a user,
which causes the socket to be freed and triggers list corruption,
related to the sctp_wait_for_connect function.
