Maybe we need to keep the format information in both intel_tv and the
state. We'd use the intel_tv->format during detect, and during
duplicate_state we'd do 'state->format = intel_tv->format' and during
commit we'd do 'intel_tv->format = state->format' ?

Still self modifying, and somewhat racy still, but at least we
shouldn't explode on account of the connector->state dereference.
