I apologize for being blunt, but this patch is unacceptable. It doesn't
cover all cases, it's incorrect and inefficient.
I really think it's best to leave determining the thread state up to
VMThread, except of course that there still needs to be support for
threads that don't yet (or no longer) have a VMThread.
Below is a patch that shows what I think getState should look like.
