The state column shows RUN for running processes, and for sleeping
processes, it shows the sleep string (or mutex name if there's an * in
front).  There is no official table of them since there are so many
(and they are dynamic; a kernel module may add more).  "find /sys -type
f | xargs grep msleep" will print most of the sleep strings, and "find
/sys -type f | xargs grep mtx_init" should print the mutex names.
