Those sound like bugs in your patch.  Specifically:

+    /* Same approach as hash_range */
+    result = hash_uint32_extended((uint32) flags, seed);
+    result ^= lower_hash;
+    result = (result << 1) | (result >> 63);
+    result ^= upper_hash;

That doesn't give compatible results.  The easiest thing to do might
be to rotate the high 32 bits and the low 32 bits separately.
JsonbHashScalarValueExtended has the same problem.  Maybe create a
helper function that does something like this (untested):

((x << 1) & UINT64COUNT(0xfffffffefffffffe)) | ((x >> 31) &

Yes, I think you should return the seed rather than 0 in the cases
where the current code hard-codes a 0 return.  That will give the same
behavior in the seed == 0 case while cheaply getting us something a
bit different when there is a seed.

BTW, you should probably invent and use a PG_RETURN_UINT64 macro in this patch.
