For the create_inline_session(struct socket_ctx *skt_ctx, struct ipsec_sa *sa) function,
all of the required data is available in the in the skt_ctx variable.
The skt_ctx variable is already setup when sa_init() is called.
For the create_lookaside_session(struct ipsec_ctx *ipsec_ctx, struct ipsec_sa *sa) function,
the required data is available in the ipsec_ctx variable.
The ipsec_ctx variable is not setup when sa_init() is called.
It is setup in the main_loop() function when the variable qconf is setup.
The main_loop() function is called after the sa_init() function is called.
I hope this answers your question
