While working on another patch I wanted to add some extra debug
information to the attach_command function.  This required me to add a
new function to convert the thread_info::state variable to a string.

I thought the new debug might be useful to others, and the state to
string function might be useful in other locations, so I thought I'd
post this to see if folk were happy to have this merged.

Thoughts?
