Line containing compr_free (between SETUP and FREE) seems to be misaligned?

If you move prepare to the left and drain in place of drain, it feels
like you won't need this weird indirection with A
Something like:

>> + v
>> + compr_free() +----------+
>> + +------------------------------------| |
>> + | | SETUP |
>> + | +------------------------>| |<-------------------------+
>> + | | compr_write() +----------+ |
>> + | | ^ |

>> + | | | |
>> + | | | |
>> + | | +----------+ |
>> + | | | | |
>> + | | | DRAIN | |
>> + | | | | |
>> + | | +----------+ |
>> + | | ^ |
>> + | | | |
>> + | | | compr_drain() |
>> + | | | |
>> + | | | |
>> + | +----------+ +----------+ |
>> + | | | compr_start() | | compr_stop() |
>> + | | PREPARE |------------------->| RUNNING |--------------------------+
>> + | | | | | |
>> + | +----------+ +----------+ |
>> + | | | ^ |
>> + | | compr_free() | | |
>> + | | compr_pause() | | compr_resume() |
>> + | | | | |
>> + | v v | |
>> + | +----------+ +----------+ |
>> + | | | | | compr_stop() |
>> + +--->| FREE | | PAUSE |---------------------------+
>> + | | | |
>> + +----------+ +----------+
>> +

but this makes me question PREPARE state, how do you enter it?
