Please find attached an updated version of this patch. It has been reworked for
additional safety (checking MAXPATHLEN and NAME_MAX better), and a different
renaming scheme (it simply appends a number starting from 1 to 9999 to the
filename, making sure to respect any file extension). There were a few other
changes and bug fixes made too. This applies to rsync 3.1.2, including the new
debug and info message handling.

It's a pretty specific use case to need this patch, but we find it useful.
Posting here in case others have use for this also.
