[ Upstream commit 8cd5c25f2db03306727d2f6b8f28956169dc1123 ]

local_cork is used to decide if it should uncork asoc outq after processing
some cmds, and it is set when replying or sending msgs. local_cork should
always have the same value with current asoc q->cork in some way.

The thing is when changing to a new asoc by cmd SET_ASOC, local_cork may
not be consistent with the current asoc any more. The cmd seqs can be:

  SCTP_CMD_SET_ASOC (new_asoc)
  SCTP_CMD_DELETE_TCB (new_asoc)

The 1st REPLY makes OLD asoc q->cork and local_cork both are 1, and the cmd
DELETE_TCB clears NEW asoc q->cork and local_cork. After asoc goes back to
OLD asoc, q->cork is still 1 while local_cork is 0. The 2nd REPLY will not
set local_cork because q->cork is already set and it can't be uncorked and
sent out because of this.

To keep local_cork consistent with the current asoc q->cork, this patch is
to uncork the old asoc if local_cork is set before changing to the new one.

Note that the above cmd seqs will be used in the next patch when updating
asoc and handling errors in it.
