Default How to get a non-const referento to fvBoundaryMesh

Hi guys, we are trying to change the fvPatch type of a boundary mesh at runtime (changing from wall type to empty type); therefore, we need a non-const reference to the fvBoundaryMesh, so we can assign a new patch using something like

fvBoundaryMesh& bmesh = mesh.boundary();

emptyFvPatch newPatch

bmesh.set(0, newPatch);
However, this does not work because mesh.boundary() returns a const reference to the fvBoundaryMesh. Any ideas about how we could change the patch type at runtime? Thanks in advance.
