[PATCH] introduce TASK_DEAD state
I am not sure about this patch, I am asking Ingo to take a decision. task_struct->state == EXIT_DEAD is a very special case, to avoid a confusion it makes sense to introduce a new state, TASK_DEAD, while EXIT_DEAD should live only in ->exit_state as documented in sched.h. Note that this state is not visible to user-space, get_task_state() masks off unsuitable states.
