Device majors incorrectly set to 0 during rsync

We seem to working from wildly different revs of flist.c :) Mine is the
stock file from the 2.6.0 source. I don't even find an occurance of 0xFF in
there, so your patch wouldn't apply, even by hand -- the code is just too
I think I understand what you were attempting to accomplish with it though,
and the relevant equivalent code in the 2.6.0 version /is/ masked as a
if (preserve_devices && IS_DEVICE(file->mode))
(flags & SAME_RDEV) ? last_rdev : (DEV64_T) read_int(f);
Which /seems/ to do the right thing.

Looks like the code is masking a 64-bit number with a 32-bit mask
(ouch)! Try the attached patch and let me know if it fixes the problem.
