Yeah.  Here's a patch that removes all ad-* function usages in
help-fns.el which also fixes the original regression.  It's a bit hairy,
especially when you have pieces of advice on aliases, but it seems to do
the trick.  It wouldn't be bad if someone else could have a look at the

To test it, I did the following old and new advice definitions in

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defadvice load (before my-load-advice activate)
  ;; do nothing

(advice-add 'append :before #'ignore)

(defalias 'concat-seqs 'append)

(advice-add 'concat-seqs :after #'ignore)

(defadvice concat-seqs (around blabla activate)

(defalias 'quack-mode 'scheme-mode)

(defadvice scheme-mode (before before-scheme-mode activate)
  ;; do nothing

(advice-add 'quack-mode :before #'ignore)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Here's what I now get with C-h f:

,----[ C-h f load RET ]
| load is a built-in function in `C source code'.
| :around advice: `ad-Advice-load'

,----[ C-h f append RET ]
| append is a built-in function in `C source code'.
| (append &rest SEQUENCES)
| :before advice: `ignore'

,----[ C-h f concat-seqs RET ]
| concat-seqs is an alias for `append'.
| (concat-seqs &rest SEQUENCES)
| :around advice: `ad-Advice-concat-seqs'
| :after advice: `ignore'
| :before advice: `ignore'

,----[ C-h f scheme-mode RET ]
| scheme-mode is an interactive autoloaded compiled Lisp function in 
| (scheme-mode)
| Parent mode: `prog-mode'.
| :around advice: `ad-Advice-scheme-mode'

,----[ C-h f quack-mode RET ]
| quack-mode is an alias for `scheme-mode'.
| (quack-mode)
| :before advice: `ignore'
| :around advice: `ad-Advice-scheme-mode'

That looks reasonable to me.
