In principle you could just copy the results for the needed band
structure,
but I am not sure the code will recognize that the data is there. You
may
need to modify the code. Keeping track of all possible cases is not
easy.
Typically the calculation of bands is a small part wrt a phonon
calculation.
The ultimate solution is to speed up the calculation of bands, but
this would
require some ideas and some serious work

what should work in which case and with which version of the code
exactly?
