Hi Marcelo,

So I've looked at the code.
As far as I understand, the problem is a race condition between
setsockopt(SCTP_SOCKOPT_CONNECTX) and shutdown on an sctp socket.
setsockopt() calls sctp_wait_for_connect(), which exits the for loop
on the sk->sk_shutdown & RCV_SHUTDOWN if clause, and then frees asoc
with sctp_association_put() and returns err = 0.
Then __sctp_connect() checks that err == 0 and reads asoc->assoc_id
from the freed asoc.
