Well spotted, gcc let me down on this one:

[acme@...toy ~]$ cat a.c
#include <stdio.h>

struct foo { int a_bit:1; };

int main(void) {
        int trickme = 0x04;
        struct foo oof;

        oof.a_bit = trickme & 4;
        printf("%u\n", oof.a_bit);
}
[acme@...toy ~]$ make a
cc     a.c   -o a
[acme@...toy ~]$ ./a
0
[acme@...toy ~]$

But...

[acme@...toy ~]$ cat a.c
#include <stdio.h>

struct foo { int a_bit:1; };

int main(void) {
        struct foo oof;

        oof.a_bit = 0x04;
        printf("%u\n", oof.a_bit);
}
[acme@...toy ~]$ make a
cc     a.c   -o a
a.c: In function 'main':
a.c:8: warning: overflow in implicit constant conversion
[acme@...toy ~]$

I expected a warning since the and operation clearly could yield a
value that would overflow, just like in the constant case...

Anyway, thanks a lot Paul!
