Definitely the right direction. Only comment really is style related

We usualyl define

struct foo *foo_get(struct foo *)
void foo_put(struct foo *)

helpers/inlines just make it clearer and keep the knowledge of the
function pointer etc in one place

Also when you take a reference this lets you write the more natural

bar->foo = foo_get(foo);
