Thank you, graham-poulter. This solved our issue. Note to other users
affected: If `ps ax | grep fuser | wc` still shows lots of zombie fuser
procs: after modifying the cron.d entry, you may need to kill the
runaway find processes. In our case we had three overlapping finds
running, which caused the number of fuser procs to rise and fall between
5000 and 16,000 long after fully disabling the cron.d entry.
