XFS stores ACLs different than other Linux filesystems because it's
on-disk compatible to IRIX.  While the other filesystems store the ACL
in the same format that is used for the user interface XFS stores it
in a separate trusted extended attribute.  rsync should and
traditionally has ignored those attributes, but it seems something in
rsync changed recently so that it tries to copy these attributes in
the trusted.* namespace, which fails on NFS.
