My guess is that under load vcpus are being migrated between pcpus and
that this "being migrated" state is one which isn't described.

"------" pretty much is "NA".

You could propose a patch against
xen.git/xen/common/domctl.c:getdomaininfo() to consider other states the
VPF_blocked as blocked, (list is in xen/include/xen/sched.h) or
introduce a new state to be propagated up to the tools (and patch the
tools to consume it).

the patch submission process.
