Subject: [PATCH] sctp: refactor sctp_outq_teardown to insure proper
 re-initalization

commit 2f94aabd9f6c925d77aecb3ff020f1cc12ed8f86 upstream.

Jamie Parsons reported a problem recently, in which the re-initalization of an
association (The duplicate init case), resulted in a loss of receive window
space.  He tracked down the root cause to sctp_outq_teardown, which discarded
all the data on an outq during a re-initalization of the corresponding
association, but never reset the outq->outstanding_data field to zero.  I wrote,
and he tested this fix, which does a proper full re-initalization of the outq,
fixing this problem, and hopefully future proofing us from simmilar issues down
the road.
