Your diagnostic work is helpful:  rsync calls a recursive function for every
level downward in the directory hierarchy, so you need enough stack to be able
to descend low enough to the deepest subdir.  The one thing that makes the stack
memory use so large is that rsync is currently allocating a filename buffer on
the stack for every level of directory descent.  I'll check to see if this would
be easy to optimize that.
