I traced the instruction calls going through SMB.

I identified lots of calls going to getdents64.  I tracked this down to be
the call to scan a directory for files.  I then searched for directories
with large numbers of files.  Found one, an uploads directory, with 25K

I reduced the directory size and CPU has gone back down to a sane level.
