After reviewed this patch, I think we should delete active ICMP proto
unreachable timer when free transport. since I don't reproduce this BUG,
so I just do compile test only, sorry.

[PATCH] sctp: delete active ICMP proto unreachable timer when free transport

transport may be free before ICMP proto unreachable timer expire, so
we should delete active ICMP proto unreachable timer when transport
is going away.
