bug#8304: 23.2; ad-read-advised-function default to func at point

When using the advice.el things interactively, eg. ad-disable-advice or
ad-activate, it'd be good if the read for the function name defaulted to
a func at point.

Currently I think it only offers the most recently defined advice, so
with

    (defadvice doctor (around no-doctoring activate)
      "Disable the doctor."
      (error "The doctor is at a medical conference in Barbados"))
    (defadvice dunnet (around no-games activate)
      "Disable games."
      (error "Shouldn't you be working?"))

An M-x ad-disable-advice with point on either "doctor" or "dunnet"
offers "dunnet", where I hoped that on "doctor" it would offer doctor.

        * emacs-lisp/advice.el (ad-read-advised-function): Use
        `function-called-at-point' as the default default, if the func at
        point has advice, and passes PREDICATE.
