I think an smbd process has a problem and cannot close its log file(s),
and another smbd process rotates the log file and remove old one.

Run `lsof -n |grep 'smbd.*deleted'` to check if an smbd opens the removed
log file or not, run `strace -ttTfx -s 9999 -o smbd.strace -p <smbd's PID>`
to check what is the smbd doing, and run
`cat /proc/<smbd's PID>/fd/<logfile's FD> >smbd.log` to see the
contents of the removed log file.
