I don't yet have that patch in place, so my next run won't be on the new 

This one has completed, with a timeout:
+ rsync --recursive --links --hard-links --perms --owner --group 
--devices --times --sparse --one-file-system --rsh=/usr/bin/ssh --delete 
--delete-excluded --delete-after --max-delete=80 --relative --stats 
--numeric-ids --timeout=3600 /var/local/backups
io timeout after 3600 seconds - exiting
rsync error: timeout in data send/receive (code 30) at io.c(85)

real    3001m51.871s
user    14m32.230s
sys     4m26.440s

As you can see, I don't have any stats on its performance.

I'm about to restart it, based on this I expect the next run to finish 
catching up.

Regarding the patch, I intend to put together a procedure that works, or 
reliably fails. I'll report back on this thread when I have an outcome.
