net/sctp: terminate rhashtable walk correctly

I was seeing a lot of these:

Apparently we always need to call rhashtable_walk_stop(), even when
rhashtable_walk_start() fails:

 * rhashtable_walk_start - Start a hash table walk
 * @iter:       Hash table iterator
 * Start a hash table walk.  Note that we take the RCU lock in all
 * cases including when we return an error.  So you must always call
 * rhashtable_walk_stop to clean up.

otherwise we never call rcu_read_unlock() and we get the splat above.
