I think it would have been better if it return status as 4 for cases where
directory/file is not accessible (current new cases added by this patch).

I think status 3 should be only return only when the data directory is valid
and pid file is missing, because in script after getting this code, the next
thing they will probably do is to start the server which doesn't seem a
good fit for newly added cases.

Other than that patch seems fine to me.
