BIT_AND_EXPR allows efficient branchless implementation on platforms which
allow chained conditional compares (e.g. ARM). You can't repro this on
current trunk though because I'm still waiting for ccmp patches from
Zhenqiang Chen to be approved :(

AFAIK LLVM team recently got some 1% on SPEC from this.
