So it looks like a Fedora user hit this bug, and reported it as
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10364 (which was closed as a dupe of
this one) and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1050081 . In
response, Fedora's rsync maintainer backported the reversion of
78286a03d196efeed754aa4c1faa571f5dbea342 to our Fedora package, in the build
rsync-3.1.0-4 .

Unfortunately this seems to be causing *other* breakage. Fedora live
installations now seem to fail consistently with an rsync error -
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1101557 . Another reporter notes
they are now seeing the same error in a local rsync, and it goes away if they
downgrade to rsync 3.1.0-3 - see
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1101557#c19 .

I don't know exactly what's going on, but it seems like just reverting the
original commit is just exchanging one bug for another?
