Hmm, but in that case, why define andsi3 at all? optabs applies exactly
that decomposition if you don't:
/* These can be done a word at a time. */
if ((binoptab == and_optab || binoptab == ior_optab || binoptab == xor_optab)
&& mclass == MODE_INT
&& GET_MODE_SIZE (mode) > UNITS_PER_WORD
&& optab_handler (binoptab, word_mode) != CODE_FOR_nothing)
