Yeah, you can't use get_ref_base_and_extent literally here.

Not sure if that's too important.  But yes, splitting out

  if (DECL_P (exp))
      if (VAR_P (exp)
          && ((flag_unconstrained_commons && DECL_COMMON (exp))
              || (DECL_EXTERNAL (exp) && seen_variable_array_ref)))
          tree sz_tree = TYPE_SIZE (TREE_TYPE (exp));
          /* If size is unknown, or we have read to the end, assume there
             may be more to the structure than we are told.  */
          if (TREE_CODE (TREE_TYPE (exp)) == ARRAY_TYPE
              || (seen_variable_array_ref
                  && (sz_tree == NULL_TREE
                      || !poly_int_tree_p (sz_tree)
                      || maybe_eq (bit_offset + maxsize,
                                   wi::to_poly_offset (sz_tree)))))
            maxsize = -1;
      /* If maxsize is unknown adjust it according to the size of the
         base decl.  */
      else if (!known_size_p (maxsize)
               && DECL_SIZE (exp)
               && poly_int_tree_p (DECL_SIZE (exp)))
        maxsize = wi::to_poly_offset (DECL_SIZE (exp)) - bit_offset;
  else if (CONSTANT_CLASS_P (exp))
      /* If maxsize is unknown adjust it according to the size of the
         base type constant.  */
      if (!known_size_p (maxsize)
          && TYPE_SIZE (TREE_TYPE (exp))
          && poly_int_tree_p (TYPE_SIZE (TREE_TYPE (exp))))
        maxsize = (wi::to_poly_offset (TYPE_SIZE (TREE_TYPE (exp)))
                   - bit_offset);

into a helper with just the computed offset as argument
(plus maybe that seen_variable_array_ref which is meaningless
for the address case or rather has to be assumed true(?)) should be possible.
