A bit of Unix sysadmin lore that isn't as widely advertised as it once
was (because, thankfully, it comes up far less often than it used to):
there are only three reasons why a process would remain in an
uninterruptible sleep for more than a few milliseconds: an abnormally
slow storage peripheral (e.g. a tape drive being rewound, or a hard
drive that's about to fail), a network file server that isn't
responding to messages, or a kernel bug.
