parent[IrDA]: Calling ppp_unregister_channel() from process context (diff)
[SCTP]: Clean up stale data during association restart
During association restart we may have stale data sitting on the ULP queue waiting for ordering or reassembly. This data may cause severe problems if not cleaned up. In particular stale data pending ordering may cause problems with receive window exhaustion if our peer has decided to restart the association.
