To reproduce the bug:
1. Save the above code as bug.el
2. emacs -Q
3. C-x C-f bug.el RET
4. M-: (require 'testcover) RET
5. M-x testcover-start RET bug.el RET
Result: "Wrong type argument: consp, nil" and foo does not get defined.
(symbol-function #'my-defun) reveals that there is a call to
edebug-after in the definition that did not get replaced by testcover-after.

bug#24743: 26.0.50; Testcover does not correctly instrument a macro that uses defun
I've found several other macros in Emacs that cause the "Wrong type
argument: consp, nil" error after you use testcover-start on the files
they are defined in, because testcover is leaving edebug-before and
edebug-after in the definition:
