SubjectPATCH: fix task state reporting
Hi,

While running a test here, I noticed that some threads kept entering
"T" state according to ps aux. However, rather than stop, they'd
disappear on the next process listing, as though they weren't stopped.

Further investigation revealed the following when suspending processes:

root 1497 3.8 1.7 1472 544 ttyp1 Z 00:05 0:21 find / -name pro

Yes, 'Z' for suspended, 'T' for zombie. Something smells fishy here.

#define TASK_RUNNING 0
#define TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE 1
#define TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE 2
#define TASK_STOPPED 4
#define TASK_ZOMBIE 8
#define TASK_DEAD 16

So that's R S D T Z W, but sched.c contains R S D Z T W (Z and T
reversed). This patch corrects sched.c. (Should we correct
the order of bits in sched.h instead?)
