Yes I do, but that's fine, because there is a cast there.

Instead of specifying the address directly, you could also cast &my_io to
ev_io * or so - be creative, it's C.

It's correct, because casting &my_io->io to struct my_io gives you the
address of &my_io in the example - read about how C layouts structures and
you will see why this works, and what to do in the cases when it doesn't
work (which is also exemplified in the same chapter).
