[SCTP]: Fix a race between module load and protosw access
There is a race is SCTP between the loading of the module and the access by the socket layer to the protocol functions. In particular, a list of addresss that SCTP maintains is not initialized prior to the registration with the protosw. Thus it is possible for a user application to gain access to SCTP functions before everything has been initialized. The problem shows up as odd crashes during connection initializtion when we try to access the SCTP address list. The solution is to refactor how we do registration and initialize the lists prior to registering with the protosw. Care must be taken since the address list initialization depends on some other pieces of SCTP initialization. Also the clean-up in case of failure now also needs to be refactored.
