sctp: release cached route when the transport goes down.
Vlad Yasevich [Tue, 23 Jun 2009 15:28:05 +0000 (11:28 -0400)]
When the sctp transport is marked down, we can release the
cached route and force a new lookup when attempting to use
this transport for anything.  This way, if a better route
or source address is available, we'll try to use it.
