Some order is mentioned in RFC 6458 Chapter 6.1.1.

SCTP_COMM_UP: A new association is now ready, and data may be
exchanged with this peer. When an association has been
established successfully, this notification should be the
first one.

I can make a patch with a check on temp and make COMM_UP event first.
Currently the COMM_UP event is enqueued via commands
while the SCTP_ADDR_ADDED event is enqueued directly.

sctp_add_cmd_sf(commands, SCTP_CMD_EVENT_ULP, SCTP_ULPEVENT(ev));
vs.
asoc->stream.si->enqueue_event(&asoc->ulpq, event);

Do you want me to change to use commands instead of enqueing?
Or should we enqueue the COMM_UP event directly?
