| idx < 0 is possible, if you goto activation_failed, the connection from

| always fail by reset. So I think it should just continue process the next
| feature(s).
| -----------------------------------
| if (idx < 0)
| continue;
| -----------------------------------
| 
| idx < 0 is happended when we recv a change option with unknown feature type.

No, since an unknown feature at this stage would most definitively be a bug.

The validity checking happens earlier:
 * for NN values every valid value is accepted as per RFC -
   this is ensured via dccp_feat_is_valid_nn_val();
 * for SP values at least the confirmed value must be valid -
   - this is checked in confirm_recv(),
   - setsockopt is protected against registering invalid feature values,
   - for CCIDs, additional a check for availability is made before
     entering negotiation.

These conditions (should) ensure that the above condition is never
triggered, the test is like an assert() clause.
