disable various anacron tasks

Noticed in the field that an 8.2.1 XO-1 was running particularly slowly and top showed some stuff happening with RPM.
Turns out that cron.daily creates a list of packages installed in the system. And this bug is still present in 10.1.2.
While exploring I found that we are also doing a lot of other pointless stuff scheduled.
I propose marking these files as non-executable:
/etc/cron.daily/logrotate /etc/cron.daily/makewhatis /etc/cron.daily/mlocate /etc/cron.daily/readahead /etc/cron.daily/rpm /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch /etc/cron.weekly/99-raid-check /etc/cron.monthly/readahead-monthly.cron
