Log Message:
Update "rsync" package to version 2.5.3. Changes since version 2.5.2:
- Make sure that supplementary groups are removed from a server
  process after changing uid and gid. (Ethan Benson) (Debian bug
  #132272, CVE CAN-2002-0080)
- Fix zlib double-free bug.  (Owen Taylor, Mark J Cox) (CVE
- Fixed problem that in many cases caused the error message
	unexpected read size of 0 in map_ptr
  and resulted in the wrong data being copied.
- Fixed compilation errors on some systems caused by the use of
  "unsigned int64" in rsync.h.
- Fixed problem on systems such as Sunos4 that do not support realloc
  on a NULL pointer; error was "out of memory in flist_expand".
- Fix for rsync server processes hanging around after the client
  unexpectedly disconnects.  (Colin Walters) (Debian bug #128632)
- Cope with BSD systems on which mkdir() will not accept a trailing
- Merge in changes from zlib 1.1.2 to zlib 1.1.3.  (Note that
  rsync still uses a custom version of zlib; you can not just link
  against a system library.  See zlib/README.rsync)
- Command to initiate connections is only shown with -vv, rather
  than -v as in 2.5.2.  Output from plain -v is more similar to
  what was historically used so as not to break scripts that try
  to parse the output.
- Added --no-whole-file and --no-blocking-io options (Dave Dykstra)
- Made the --write-batch and --read-batch options actually work
  and added documentation in the man page (Jos Backus)
- If the daemon is unable to fork a child to accept a connection,
  print an error message.  (Colin Walters)
