You don't mention what version of rsync you're using.  Version 2.4.6
would often hang when the -v option was used, so if you're using that,
you'd do well to upgrade.

The system calls you cite are normal for that process.  It's the loop in
the wait_process() function, which is a normal end-of-run occurrance.
One of the other 2 processes is probably hung up on a read or write, and
you'd have to look at those processes with strace to see what is going
