ACL and RSYNC possible bug

OK - I think this should be fixed.

Running rsync -aA on a file system that doesn't support ACLs I get:

send_acl: sys_acl_get_file(mysql, SMB_ACL_TYPE_ACCESS): Operation not supported
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(789)

And - it aborts. 

Seems to me it should warn but continue to copy the files anyway ignoring the ACLs.
