DO NOT REPLY [Bug 4899] When a mounted dir cannot be visited, rsync will halt there and the shell is halted, even "ctrl -c" can't quit it.

We need to stat() the file to know if it is a directory or not.  Otherwise the
directory-specific exclude rules won't work right.

So, the only possible solution that would allow the stat() to be skipped would
be to allow the exclude code to deal with an "unknown" file/dir status, and
have it stat() a name that matched a dir-only exclusion rule to be sure that it
was indeed a dir (at which point the file's dir-ness would be remembered).
