Isn't that the problem? You are referring to radeon_connector_hotplug where it
puts old dpms state into the connector.

On disconnect DPMS gets set to off, and then connector->dpms restored to ON.

Subsequent hotplug then doesn't bring up the display
becausedrm_helper_connector_dpms bails out early due to current mode and target
mode being the same.

Manually calling xset dpms force off and then on works because "off" this time
really sets connector->dpms to OFF which allows following "on" command to do
all things it needs to turn it on.

So my question is why this saved_state business in radeon_connector_hotplug?
