sctp: hold the transport before using it in sctp_hash_cmp

Since commit 4f008781 ("sctp: apply rhashtable api to send/recv
path"), sctp uses transport rhashtable with .obj_cmpfn sctp_hash_cmp,
in which it compares the members of the transport with the rhashtable
args to check if it's the right transport.

But sctp uses the transport without holding it in sctp_hash_cmp, it can
cause a use-after-free panic. As after it gets transport from hashtable,
another CPU may close the sk and free the asoc. In sctp_association_free,
it frees all the transports, meanwhile, the assoc's refcnt may be reduced
to 0, assoc can be destroyed by sctp_association_destroy.

So after that, transport->assoc is actually an unavailable memory address
in sctp_hash_cmp. Although sctp_hash_cmp is under rcu_read_lock, it still
can not avoid this, as assoc is not freed by RCU.

This patch is to hold the transport before checking it's members with
sctp_transport_hold, in which it checks the refcnt first, holds it if
it's not 0.
