GitLab partial outage - attempting to mitigate

I eventually resorted to a server reboot, which cleared up all the problems
I was seeing. I think we're back in business.

Symptoms were:

* No new data coming into
* High-frequency repetition of the system log message
"systemd-journald[1622008]: Failed to open runtime journal: Device or
resource busy"
* ~50% failure rate connecting to the server with ssh

None of those are happening anymore.
