See TRUTH_AND_EXPR is in C-notation && and TRUTH_ANDIF_EXPR is also
&&.  The transcription to binary & is done in gimplifier.  Btw I just
noticed that by this patch a latent bug in gimplifier about
boolification for TRUTH_NOT_EXPR/TRUTH_AND/OR... is present.
On Fortran there are different boolean-kinds types with different
precision.  This makes them incompatible to eachother in gimple (as
useless_type_conversion_p returns for them false).  For gimplier needs
to ensure that operands for those TRUTH_... expression met a
compatible type of final expression type.

I will sent a patch for this as soon I completed regression-testing for it.
