Xufeng Zhang - Jan. 23, 2013, 7:38 a.m.
From: Xufeng Zhang <xufeng.zhang@windriver.com>

While sctp handling a duplicate COOKIE-ECHO and the action is
'Association restart', sctp_sf_do_dupcook_a() will processing
the unexpected COOKIE-ECHO for peer restart, but it does not set
the association state to SCTP_STATE_ESTABLISHED, so the association
could stuck in SCTP_STATE_SHUTDOWN_PENDING state forever.
This violates the sctp specification:
  RFC 4960 5.2.4. Handle a COOKIE ECHO when a TCB Exists
  Action
  A) In this case, the peer may have restarted. .....
     After this, the endpoint shall enter the ESTABLISHED state.

Fix this problem by adding a SCTP_CMD_NEW_STATE cmd to the command
list so as to set the restart association to SCTP_STATE_ESTABLISHED
state properly.

Looks reasonable to me, thanks

nit: The RFC indicate the association should enter the ESTABLISHED state after
preforming all other actions, so it seems that the state change should occur
after the ULP event is sent

I have a slight concern here that if we change state last, then any data 
that may have been bundled with COOKIE-ACK as part of CMD_REPLY will get 
the SACK_IMMEDIATE flag set since we are still in the SHUTDOWN_PENDING 
state.

I would be more correct (and would match sctp_sf_do_5_1D_ce) to
do it in this order:
   UPDATE_ASSOC  - resets all the congestion/association variables
   EVENT_UP  - send RESTART to USER
   NEW_STATE  - set ESTABLISHED state (as per spec)
   REPLY	- Send cookie-ack along with any pending data.

Yep, I agree with you, I'll send V2 patch based on your suggestion.
