    Oops. Indeed. TASK_RUNNING isn't a bit at all, it's a lack of sleep.

    Turning the logic the other way around:

    /* Ignore processes that are dead or stopped (except for SIGKILL) */
    if (sig != SIGKILL)
    mask != TASK_STOPPED;

    and testing for !((p)->state & mask) should fix it. The mask ends up being
    the states that are _not_ good to send signals for ;)
