According to the man page...
STATE is the current state (one of "START", "RUN", "STOP", "ZOMB", "DEAD",
PID USERNAME PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE TIME WCPU CPU COMMAND
4216 root 2 0 48K 320K nfsd 0:48 0.00% 0.00% nfsd
So, nfsd would be the wait channel? If that is so then fair enough. I
can't say I like it though.
or wait channel if the state is SLEEP
