You can check dump_tree (vtab) to see if you are seeing an VAR_DECL.  BINFO_VTABLE
is usually POINTER_PLUS_EXPR, so you want to access DECL_INITIAL
of TREE_OPERAND (vtab) in that case.

If you want to access an virtual method with given token (position in vtable),
you can just use gimple_get_virt_method_for_binfo (or borrow code from there
for things you need).
