[ Upstream commit 6dfe4b97e08ec3d1a593fdaca099f0ef0a3a19e6 ]

Dmitry got the following recursive locking report while running syzkaller
fuzzer, the Call Trace:

This warning is caused by the lock held by sctp_getsockopt() is on one
socket, while the other lock that sctp_close() is getting later is on
the newly created (which failed) socket during peeloff operation.

This patch is to avoid this warning by use lock_sock with subclass
SINGLE_DEPTH_NESTING as Wang Cong and Marcelo's suggestion.
