rsync already does this by default so there's no need to enable it
explicitly. If the timestamp and filesize on a file are the same then it
doesn't compute the checksum. See the following from the man page:
Normally rsync will skip any files that are already the same size
and have the same modification timestamp. This option turns off
this "quick check" behavior, causing all files to be updated.
