I will try, I'll post any finding that I'll find, like I said, you've mentioned faulty fs which I've checked and it ass ok, now what about the kernel angle, I did heard of someone that had an issue with rsync and fixed it by recompiling its kernel, 
the question is, does it a compilation related or version of kernel related.
I'll try an boot with my other kernel image and run rsync again, I'll post my findings too.
