[SCTP]: Fix up sctp_rcv return value
I was working on the ipip/xfrm problem and as usual I get side-tracked by other problems. As part of an attempt to change the IPv4 protocol handler calling convention I found that SCTP violated the existing convention. It's returning non-zero values after freeing the skb. This is doubly bad as 1) the skb gets resubmitted; 2) the return value is interpreted as a protocol number. This patch changes those return values to zero. IPv6 doesn't suffer from this problem because it uses a positive return value as an indication for resubmission. So the only effect of this patch there is to increment the IPSTATS_MIB_INDELIVERS counter which IMHO is the right thing to do. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>
