Trying to `strace` what `rsync` does in my OpenAFS use-case I've found that the
only syscals invoked by `rysync` (and pertaining to the file in question) are:

* `readlink`;
* `newfstatat`;
* `openat`;
* `symlink`;

Furthermore, none of them actually fail, instead it seems that the "Operation
not supported (95)" is actually generated internally (although I couldn't
easily identify its origin).
