See : the 
loop that 
performs the AND looks like this:

for (; i < to_bits; i++) {
	intern->bitset_val[i / CHAR_BIT] &= param->bitset_val[i / CHAR_BIT];

so taking, for example, CHAR_BIT=8, it does
 (intern[0] & param[0]),
 1/8=0 -> (intern[0] & param[0])
 2/8=0 -> (intern[0] & param[0])
 8/8=1 -> (intern[1] & param[1])

ie, it does AND CHAR_BIT times for every char. My suggested fix is to change the 
loop to 
something like this:

for (; i < to_bits; i+= CHAR_BIT) {
	intern->bitset_val[i / CHAR_BIT] &= param->bitset_val[i / CHAR_BIT];

//last increment may have set i above the bitset(s) bounds(and made the for loop 
last bits): operate on the last octect bit by bit

i = (to_bits/CHAR_BIT) * CHAR_BIT; // get the index of the last bit on a char 

for (unsigned char mask=0x0; i < to_bits; i++) {
        // bitwise and one bit at a time
        // please note the following code is not tested

        mask = ~(1 << (i%CHAR_BITS)); // all bits set to 1 except the current 
        mask |= param->bitset_val[i / CHAR_BIT]; // all 1s if the current index 
is set, 
mask unchanged if not

	intern->bitset_val[i / CHAR_BIT] &= mask; //changes only the current bit

Note also if bitset_len1 > bitset_len2, then IMO the remaining (len1-len2) bits 
from intern->bitset_val should be set to zero (because semantically it would be 
equivalent to ANDing with NULL, and (anything&NULL)==false).

the mask'ing part inside the loop can be condensed, similar to

I also faced same issue but now it solved for me. (
