sctp: send abort chunk when max_retrans exceeded
Neil Horman [Tue, 20 Nov 2012 10:14:30 +0000 (10:14 +0000)]
In the event that an association exceeds its max_retrans attempts, we should
send an ABORT chunk indicating that we are closing the assocation as a result.
Because of the nature of the error, its unlikely to be received, but its a nice
clean way to close the association if it does make it through, and it will give
anyone watching via tcpdump a clue as to what happened.

Change notes:
v2)
* Removed erroneous changes from sctp_make_violation_parmlen
