I've got a server that gets backed up during normal operation. While the rsync
sender is building up the file list, it saturates the disk subsystem with the
directory traversal which drives load due to other operations to silly heights.

The patch to follow implements a --filelimit=n option that limits the number of
files to be looked up per second, very similar to the --bwlimit option.
