The DAG combiner will expand zero-extends into ands, and in your 
selection patterns you can simply match a corresponding and with the 
bitmask instead of a zext. You can even write a PatFrag to serve as a 
macro for that.
Another option is that you can lower zero-extend to a custom operation 
for your target. DAG combiner won't do anything with it, and then you 
can match it directly in the patterns.
