Patch LGTM.

Please note that the above suggests a possible net-next follow-
up/cleanup, replacing the spin_lock_bh() in
sctp_addr_wq_timeout_handler() with a simple/faster spin_lock() - since
sctp_addr_wq_timeout_handler() runs with BH disabled. Anyhow net-next
is closed now, it will have to wait a bit ;)
