In salt development version already has this function.

Salt version of me in my server used above is 2015.5.8 (Lithium), state module does not rsync, and you know it is crazy  update all server to development version, So I ported this function to the current version. It’s very simple.

Add a custom module and state module,Copy the files from the development version over, only need a simple modification.
