It shows you the system calls being made. If you read down to the end,
rsync writes 4 bytes and then tries to read 4 bytes from the remote
side. At that point it gets a closed socket error.

Thus, the issue isn't rsync but that the connection is closing without
either side being able to send/receive any data. (Both sides are
seeing the connection go away.)  Perhaps the networking drivers are
buggy.  Or perhaps you have firewall or selinux rules that are closing
the connection.  Your /var/log files might have a clue.
