sctp_connect() or __sctp_connect() do not need to call
security_sctp_bind_connect(). This is because the connect(2) call will
handle the checks required via security_socket_connect():

Ok, thanks, that's exactly what I wanted to get.

Anyway, somebody should still verify that it all looks good in my
tree, but I don't actually expect the merge to have had any issues
even if the refactoring made it a bit more complex than most merges

Thanks for the quick response Richard.

Xin Long looked it over and gave it the thumbs up, I'll take a look too, but to be honest I trust his SCTP understanding much more than mine.  I also do weekly tests of each rcX release at a minimum so if something odd pops up I'll make sure you get a fix.

Thanks again everyone.
