I built the kernel this morning and sorry to spoil the party, but I've
run into a problem with lksctp-tools when running the func_tests:

make v6test
test_timetolive.c  0 INFO : Creating fillmsg of size 3087
test_timetolive.c  1 PASS : Send a message with timeout
test_timetolive.c  2 PASS : Send a message with no timeout
test_timetolive.c  3 PASS : Send a fragmented message with timeout
test_timetolive.c  0 INFO :  **  SLEEPING for 3 seconds **
test_timetolive.c  4 BROK : Got a datamsg of unexpected length:23,
expected length:27
DUMP_CORE sctputil.c: 247
/bin/sh: line 1: 30981 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) ./$a
test_timetolive_v6 fails

make v4 test fails the same way. I'm using lksctp-tools from [1]. I
have not investigated the cause yet as just found this and thought I
should flag first just in case someone has the answer !!!

On the bright side, I've run the sctp-tests from [2] with no problems
and also the selinux-testsuite with my SCTP patch from [3] using an
updated Fedora policy from [4] (with sctp support added), all in
enforcing mode.

Also the LTP test passed:
cd /opt/ltp/
cat runtest/syscalls |grep connect01>runtest/connect-syscall
./runltp -pq -f connect-syscall
