I have some better state-output code that I'll check in for the 'xm'
tool. Currently, the flag array is 'rbpsc', where:
 r: Running
 b: Blocked (e.g., waiting for I/O)
 p: Paused DOM0 by control software
 s: Domain has shut itself down (probably awaiting cleanup by xend)
 c: Domain crashed inside Xen -- shutdown pending postmortem by xend

I have code that actually gives a useful phrase describing the state
of the domain in plain English, which might be more useful. :-)
