Hmm, I'm finding this explanation somewhat confusing.

Isn't the problem just that shifts are unusual as binops, in that the 
two operands can have different modes? We have the appropriate mode for 
the shift count in xmode1, so I think we should just always rebuild a 
CONST_INT in that mode. As in,

   else if (CONST_INT_P (xop1))
     /* Shifts can have different modes for the shift count, and the caller
        might not have taken this into account when generating an 
integer.  */
     xop1 = gen_int_mode (INTVAL (xop1), xmode1);

Ok with that change if it passes.
