To see if the mysql process is really stuck in an uninterruptable
state, check the output of "ps -lp <pid>".  If the "S" (possibly STAT
or STATE) column has a "D" or a "U" in it, it's in an uninterruptible
state, and the "WCHAN" column should show what it's waiting on.

This could easily happen if mysqld is accessing NFS-mounted databases
and the remote system is down.
