Covscan report with commentary


I ran a coverity scan(static analyser) on rsync-3.1.3 and it found some 100
issues. I am enclosing the complete report as an attachment. 

On the bottom of the file, there is my commentary for each defect found by the
scanner. The scanner is far from perfect so there might be a lot of false
positives(I have marked those in the commentary). Also, there are things I
could not figure out whether they are false positives or not. I would like to
ask someone with a deeper knowledge of the code to either confirm or disprove
my findings. After that I will be more than happy to send a patch that will fix
some of these issues.

Thanks and regards,
