Device majors incorrectly set to 0 during rsync

Excellent!  In the meantime, the 32bit + -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 works
brilliantly, so I'll wait for a release.  This is meant to run on prod
boxes, so I need to use a release if possible, so noone asks funny questions
about beta software, etc.

You know how it is.

I just have to remember to compile 32bit until I see a fix go through for
this one.

Thanks for your help :)

Note that my patch won't fix the problem because rsync only transmits
the lower 32 bits of the rdev value.  To fix this will require a
protocol change.  I'll consider that.  Comments welcomed.
