It appears to be a packet that consists only of an sctp header.
sctp_gso_segment pulls the header before calling skb_segment,
after which hsize == skb_headlen(head_skb) == 0 and nfrags == 0.

This check avoids the crash, but still triggers an skb_warn_bad_offload
on return in __skb_gso_segment

+ goto out;

A gso packet shorter than mss should perhaps just be dropped. The stack
does not generate these. tcp_gso_segment does have a test

if (unlikely(skb->len <= mss))
goto out;

but as mss is derived from gso_size, which a packet socket controls, this
may not be sufficient for this purpose.
