Subject[PATCH 3.12 73/86] sctp: listen on the sock only when it's state is listening or closed
From: Xin Long <>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


[ Upstream commit 34b2789f1d9bf8dcca9b5cb553d076ca2cd898ee ]

Now sctp doesn't check sock's state before listening on it. It could
even cause changing a sock with any state to become a listening sock
when doing sctp_listen.

This patch is to fix it by checking sock's state in sctp_listen, so
that it will listen on the sock with right state.
