Regarding --link-dest, I made further testing with rsync daemon 3.1.2.
I added a usleep(5000) at the beginning of try_dests_reg() in generator.c, so
that hard-linking all the files takes more than 2 minutes instead of some
seconds only.
Client, with a very low --timeout=10, does not timeout on this.
So it's OK, no more issue with --link-dest !

Same experience with --delete (--delete-after in my tests), adding some
usleep() so that deletion takes around 4 minutes did not make client with
--timeout=10 to abort.

Perfect !
