The problem was that the peer.cookie value points to an skb allocated
area on the first pass through this function, at which point it is
overwritten with a heap allocated value, but in certain cases, where a
COOKIE_ECHO chunk is included in the packet, a second pass through
sctp_process_init is made, where the cookie value is re-allocated,
leaking the first allocation.

Fix is to always allocate the cookie value, and free it when we are done
using it.
