Is there a particular reason this uses defadvice instead of hooks on evil states? Also, on my setup this doesn't restore the C-SPC keybinding to evil-ace-jump-char-mode after exiting evil visual line mode unless I add this:

(add-hook 'evil-visual-state-exit-hook
  (lambda () (define-key evil-motion-state-map (kbd "SPC") #'evil-ace-jump-char-mode)))

You can't differ the visual modes with the hook, so the advice is necessary.
As for the keybinding: I don't see any restoring of C-SPC. If you mean SPC as your code indicates: Works for me.

I can't seem to find any documentation on evil now having ace-jump mode integrated... can you forward a reference?

Couldn't find a reference, but this worked nicely for me (24.4 from brew):

(global-set-key (kbd "C-ø") 'ace-jump-mode)
(define-key evil-normal-state-map (kbd "ø") 'ace-jump-mode)

@joefromct: Just use the bindings. Evil now already comes with definitions of the motions.

@endrebak: That works. But you don't have operator integration this way. You additionally need bindings in the motion state map.
