--- Comment #3 from Arkadiusz Miskiewicz <arekm at maven.pl> ---
The rsync filling up kernel cache is a problem on bigger backup servers. These
days POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED is commonly implemented in unix systems.

Anyway as temporary/not optimal workaround: https://github.com/Feh/nocache (if
not wanting to patch rsync).
