Yes, it seems like it doesn't make any forward progress in
for_each_sctp_chunk() because the chunk length is zero. Can
you try this patch please?

[NETFILTER]: Fix endless loop in SCTP conntrack

When a chunk length is zero, for_each_sctp_chunk() doesn't make any forward
progress and loops forever. A chunk length of 0 is invalid, so just abort
in that case.
