Ok, it happens here:


	finfo = drm_format_info(drm_fb->format->format);

The if(drm_atomic_crtc_needs_modeset(state)) and this line of code is
run once during boot where it succeeds.

And attempted once on HPD unplug.

There, drm_fb == NULL and the dereferencing fails...

0x30 seems to be the offset of the struct member "format".

The if(event) path happens quite often during operation.
