All IP addresses that are present in a system are duplicated on 
struct sctp_sockaddr_entry. They are linked in the global list
called sctp_local_addr_list. And this struct unions IPv4 and IPv6 
addresses.

So, there can be rare case, when a sockaddr_in.sin_addr coincides
with the corresponding part of the sockaddr_in6 and the notifier
for IPv4 will carry away an IPv6 entry.

The fix is to check the family before comparing the addresses.
