[Bug 11571] New: rsync-3.1.1 --link-dest arbitrary limit

            Bug ID: 11571
           Summary: rsync-3.1.1 --link-dest arbitrary limit
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.1
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
        QA Contact: [hidden email]

Luckily this one was caught while still in development as
there were more than 20 old "snapshots" to test with:

rsync: ERROR: at most 20 --link-dest args may be specified

Looking into the source:
rsync.h:151:#define MAX_BASIS_DIRS 20

There is no warning about this in the rsync manpage. This
limit should be lifted as it makes no sense to me.
