I found an alien!

While looking at psin to control my thread pool resmgr, I saw an unknown
WAITTHREAD blocked state.

What means such state? I guess there is some relation with the thread
pool!

Hehe, if you look into system headers you will find more aliens. The
‘complete’ list of states in docs isn’t really that complete.

It’s a parent thread waiting for it’s child to finish being created
(probably waiting for the memory for the thread stack to be allocated).
