Yes, VMs running on the server.

I restarted both involved OSDs 18 and 19, and that made the 
"heartbeat_check: no reply from osd.18" lines disappear 
from the logs.

However the kworker pids running with 100% CPU utilisation remained.

Then I decided to reboot that node, and that made everything well again.

Thanks for the help!
