Sub Tasks

Description
We have received several requests about porting the SCTP API to JDK6. This bug aims to amend the current implementation to minimize the amount of changes required to port it to JDK6.

1) Remove JDK7 API dependances from the implementation
2) provide all native functionality within libsctp.so

WARNING: The SCTP implementation run with Sun's JDK6 is completely unsupported. The implementation uses Sun proprietary APIs that may be removed or changed in the future (albeit unlikely at this point in the 1.6 lifecycle). Also, Sun's JDK6 is built with RHAS 2.1A and an old gcc. JDK7 is built with Fedora 9 and a more modern gcc. Everything should work (in theory) but there are bound to to be older Linux distributions where Sun's JDK6 works but libsctp will not work.
