    sctp: use new rhlist interface on sctp transport rhashtable · 7fda702f
    Xin Long authored
    Now sctp transport rhashtable uses hash(lport, dport, daddr) as the key
    to hash a node to one chain. If in one host thousands of assocs connect
    to one server with the same lport and different laddrs (although it's
    not a normal case), all the transports would be hashed into the same
    It may cause to keep returning -EBUSY when inserting a new node, as the
    chain is too long and sctp inserts a transport node in a loop, which
    could even lead to system hangs there.
    The new rhlist interface works for this case that there are many nodes
    with the same key in one chain. It puts them into a list then makes this
    list be as a node of the chain.
    This patch is to replace rhashtable_ interface with rhltable_ interface.
    Since a chain would not be too long and it would not return -EBUSY with
    this fix when inserting a node, the reinsert loop is also removed here.
