There are some codes in ipsstat from ips_diskdev_statename(), which ipsstat
has borrowed from ips.c.  You should be seeing text for some states.

I'm happy to add codes to ipsstat for more states.  However, I don't have a
test machine with an ips controller at the moment where I can induce the
various states to see their codes.
