Note that --fake-super puts things into xattrs, not into ACLs.  However, it
will indeed put any preserved ACL info into an xattr rather than setting actual
ACLs on a file.  That's --fake-super's purpose -- to make backups of files
without needing to be root.  It is therefore not a bug that rsync doesn't
hard-link a non --fake-super file to a --fake-super file, since the two files
are very different (and rsync can only hard-link together identical files).

So, you should be using getfacl -d to see what is different, not getfattr.
