--- Comment #4 from Wayne Davison <wayne at opencoder.net> ---
The pre-release patches aren't guaranteed to be backward compatible, and in
this case the bits that were used in a couple different patches actually
conflicted with each other. So, when --atimes was promoted it became impossible
for anything using the older --fileflags patch to work with a newer rsync (or
the older --crtimes option, which also had to change bits).

Your best bet is to either copy an extra rsync binary onto the non-upgraded
target system (it doesn't have to be installed) and use the --rsync-path option
to tell rsync where to run the newer version OR to copy an older rsync version
onto the upgraded system so that you can use that rsync-old-fileflags binary to
copy to a system with the older patch.
