           Summary: checksum-reading.diff causes rsync to segfault with
                    large amount of files
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: haqthat at gmail.com

command: rsync -rvc /tmp/dir1/ /tmp/dir2/

--- SIGCHLD (Child exited) @ 0 (0) ---
wait4(-1, [{WIFSIGNALED(s) && WTERMSIG(s) == SIGSEGV && WCOREDUMP(s)}],
wait4(-1, 0x7fff1fcd221c, WNOHANG, NULL) = -1 ECHILD (No child processes)

Works with small amount of files in directory.
Does not work with large amount of files in directory.

If I compile without the checksum-reading.diff, the binary works fine with both
large file sets and small file sets.

Interesting part is that I was not even using the "--sumfiles=MODE" option at
all when the problems occur, just having the patch applied results in issues.

Tested only with 3.1.pre1
