[worker] Use private copy of mode data. JB#45312

When a dynamic mode is activated from the worker thread, a pointer to
shared mode data is cached. If mode data gets invalidated due to the main
thread reloading configuration files, the worker thread will dereference
a stale pointer during mode deactivation.

Cache clone of mode data instead of just holding pointer to shared data.

Note that this only fixes logical error in expected behavior during
config reload, there is still race condition in mode data duplication
