bug#13676: 24.2.93; Compiler warnings with (defalias #'symbol ...)

after reading (long ago) in (elisp) Anonymous Functions:

|  -- Special Form: function function-object
|  [...]  But unlike `quote', it also serves as a note to the Emacs
|evaluator and byte-compiler that FUNCTION-OBJECT is intended to be used
|as a function.  [...]

I often used something like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;; my package --- doing cool stuff

(defalias #'my-package-end-of-line
  (if (fboundp #'end-of-visual-line)

(defun my-package-do-cool-stuff ()
  (goto-char (point-min))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

If I compile this, I get a warning:

| Compiling file /home/micha/today/my-package.el at Sun Feb 10 17:54:08 2013
| In end of data:
| my-package.el:13:1:Warning: the function `my-package-end-of-line' is not known
|     to be defined.

If the first arg of `defalias' is quoted with just quote (instead of
`#''), however, you don't get a warning.

Dunno if it's no good style to use `#'' at that place - OTOH, it works,
and the warning is not useful.

A fix would presumably need to change the first condition of the `pcase' in
`byte-compile-file-form-defalias', probably to something like

  `(,_ ,(or `',name `(function ,name)) ,arg . ,rest)
