This works in a small example:

method vterm t =
  begin match t.term_node with
    | TLval(TVar lv, offs) when Logic_utils.is_same_var lv lv_old ->
      let t_new = Logic_const.term (TLval(TVar lv_new, offs))
t.term_type in 
      Cil.ChangeDoChildrenPost (t, fun _ -> t_new)

However, I use the term_offset of t in t_new. Is this correct in

With ChangeDoChildrenPost, it want to replace t with t_new. In 5.14.3.,
the meaning of ChangeDoChildrenPost is explained as follows:
"ChangeDoChildrenPost(v,f) the old node is replaced by v, the visit goes
on with the children of v, and when it is finished, f is applied to the
- does "old node" mean the original node?
- what does the "result" refer to? If it is the result of the visit,
what is this?
