It's not silent -- it outputs errors that lets you know what happened and
what it is doing (disabling deletes).

  (2) How do I achieve what I "want", which is:

Kevin already mentioned the correct solution: stop using cp -al and instead
use rsync into an empty dir with --link-dest.  This also solves several
other bogus things that happen when rsync copying over a hard-linked
directory hierarchy.
