After the revert of 1st patch moving pglz to src/common, I have
reworked both patches, resulting in the attached.

For pglz, the dependency to varlena has been removed to make the code
able to run independently on both frontend and backend sides. In order
to do that the APIs of pglz_compress and pglz_decompress have been
changed a bit:
- pglz_compress returns the number of bytes compressed.
- pglz_decompress takes as additional argument the compressed length
of the buffer, and returns the number of bytes decompressed instead of
a simple boolean for consistency with the compression API.
PGLZ_Header is not modified to keep the on-disk format intact.

The WAL compression patch is realigned based on those changes.
