Oops; I failed to notice in my dmesg:

 lfs_writer_daemon: livelock: lqc =3D 0 (of 6535), lqb =3D 0 (of 2472320), =
lsp =3D 102282 (of 8648)

However, there's only one of these for several rsync runs, all of
which hung the same way; not sure which generated it, but I'd guess
the first and that left a lock for all the later rsyncs to trip over,
since they all stopped pretty much the same place.

It still stops the same place after a umount and a fresh mount without
the cleaner, though.
