It was caused by when sending msgs without binding a port, in the path:
inet_sendmsg() -> inet_send_prepare() -> inet_autobind() ->
.get_port/sctp_get_port(), sp->bind_hash will be set while bp->port is
not. Later when binding another port by sctp_setsockopt_bindx(), a new
bucket will be created as bp->port is not set.

sctp's autobind is supposed to call sctp_autobind() where it does all
things including setting bp->port. Since sctp_autobind() is called in
sctp_sendmsg() if the sk is not yet bound, it should have skipped the
auto bind.

THis patch is to avoid calling inet_autobind() in inet_send_prepare()
by changing sctp_prot .no_autobind with true, also remove the unused
