I've wrapped these in READ_ONCE/WRITE_ONCE.

Yup, the results looked good. It recognizes that SOME and FULL have
overlapping conditions and then lays out the branches such that it
does not have to do redundant tests. It also recognizes that NONIDLE
is true when any of the other states is true and collapses that.
