There isn't any existing code to handle this, but it isn't too hard:
find the CompoundStmt which contains the given expression, then get
the end location of previous statement in that CompoundStmt.  (This is
ignoring various edge cases, but that's the fundamental algorithm.)
The ParentMap class might be useful for implementing this.
