i updated patch again as found similar pattern in code

but seems the problem is reported on server side, not client side and it still
does not work, because the --ignore-vanished apparently is not "transported" to
rsync server, and response generated by rsync server would still include those
vanished error messages.

totally different approach must be taken perhaps.

to me the rsync exit code ignoring is not a solution, because my problem looks

i rsync large disk with Maildir files, rsync alone calculating filelist takes
1.5 hour, so when the sync finishes there are certainly some files moved
around. and as for me the delete is also skipped, meaning backup space from old
removed files is never released, meaning my backup grows and grows. what would
the alternative fix here?

file has VANISHED:
(in vmail), protocol=30, code=4
IO error encountered -- skipping file deletion
