I have seen a number of processes appear to hang in that state.

For example, pkg_delete seems to be _extremely_ slow and ^T reports that
it is stuck waiting on zfs:(&zio->io_cv) for an unreasonable (IMO) amount
of time.

I may once have been forced to reboot the system due to this problem
"spreading" to other processes, but I had no time nor ability to 
investigate it further, so I'm not even sure it was the same problem.
