    sctp: Rework the tsn map to use generic bitmap. · 8e1ee18c

    The tsn map currently use is 4K large and is stuck inside
    the sctp_association structure making memory references REALLY
    expensive.  What we really need is at most 4K worth of bits
    so the biggest map we would have is 512 bytes.   Also, the
    map is only really usefull when we have gaps to store and
    report.  As such, starting with minimal map of say 32 TSNs (bits)
    should be enough for normal low-loss operations.  We can grow
    the map by some multiple of 32 along with some extra room any
    time we receive the TSN which would put us outside of the map
    boundry.  As we close gaps, we can shift the map to rebase
    it on the latest TSN we've seen.  This saves 4088 bytes per
    association just in the map alone along savings from the now
    unnecessary structure members.
