I think you have two options: create a function object (functor) or use std::function() template to pass your function to the constructor of the unordered_set. For the former just use the following code:
struct my_hash {
        size_t operator () (const myClass &f) const { return myClass.hash_value; }
};
unordered_set<myClass, my_hash> s;

Open in new window

for the latter:
size_t my_hash_function() (const myClass &f) const { return myClass.hash_value; }
};
unordered_set<myClass, std::function<decltype(my_hash_function)>> s;

Open in new window
