Looks like this one already got fixed, I guess I saw the build report go by and
fixed it?  I don't remember if I actually pulled this in, but I ended up with a
3-register andi so I guess I didn't do it that well.

I'm not sure why my build test aren't catching the M-mode stuff, as the
defconfigs are in the list.  I'll go take a look...
