int sctp_peeloff(int sd, sctp_assoc_t assoc_id);
sctp_peeloff branches off an existing association assoc_id on a one-to-
many style socket sd into a separate socket. The new socket is a one-
to-one style socket.
This is particularly desirable when, for instance, the application
wishes to have a number of sporadic message senders/receivers remain
under the original one-to-many style socket, but branch off those asso-
cations carrying high volume data traffic into their own separate
On success, the new socket descriptor representing the branched-off
asociation is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set
EBADF sd is not a valid descriptor.
EINVAL The assoc id passed is invalid or if the socket is a one-to-one
Argument is a descriptor for a file, not a socket.
