Not sure if this is related, but I get more or less the same error message out
of rsync 3.0.9 on AMD64 Linux rsyncing from an internal XFS-formatted HDD to an
external EXT3-formatted eSATA HDD (i.e. sender and receiver are the same host
communicating via pipes).

rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 5 bytes to socket [sender]: Broken
pipe (32)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (209441 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code 22) at io.c(605)
Failed: incremental rsync fails (22)

rsync command (I can post the backup script if interested):

rsync -aHA      \
        --link-dest="${LAST_OFFSITE_BACKUP_DIR}"        \
        2>&1 || die 8 "incremental rsync fails ($?)"

An almost identical command that copies from the live FS (some EXT4, some XFS)
to the internal backup HDD (XFS) works fine.
