Can this change be deferred until there actually appears a second
implementation of (*autocast_mib)?

Typically we hold function pointers in separate read-only structures rather
than in the stateful private structure of the driver, see struct sja1105_info,
struct felix_info, struct mv88e6xxx_info and mv88e6xxx_ops, struct b53_io_ops,
etc etc.
