Description of problem:
When running `netstat -n -A inet`, the application aborts execution with error message
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. netstat -n -A inet
Active Internet connections (w/o servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
tcp 0 0 192.168.122.125:22 192.168.122.1:51954 ESTABLISHED
netstat: no support for `AF INET (sctp)' on this system.
running `modprobe sctp` makes the error go away.
This was once reported and fixed as bug #229232, so it's a regression (I must have dropped the patch during 1.60 -> pre2.0 move).

Here is the patch, took from 1.60 version and adjusted to fit RHEL7 2.0 version. It suppresses the error message.
I noticed this message shows up in Fedora version too.
Thinking about it, it seems that adding "If the sctp module is not added to the kernel..." into manpage is actually pointless, because with the patch it no longer prints that message. So adding comment into man page and fixing the source are both excluding each other.
Here I made a different (and probably better) solution of this problem:
