Since the patch is very linux-specific and overly klugy, it is better handled
by a general-purpose (linux-specific) wrapper that can be used with any copy

I'd suggest checking into this utility:


I've compiled/installed it and done some basic testing, and it seems to do a
good job of issuing the fadvise64() calls on the files rsync opens.

Some examples:

nocache rsync -aiv --rsync-patch='nocache rsync' some-host:/src/ /dest/
nocache rsync --daemon
