AFAICS the only nontrivial patch in pg_lzcompress.c between 7.4 and 8.2 is my cleanup patch here: http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-committers/2006-10/msg00076.php That's been in the tree long enough that I wouldn't have any hesitation about back-porting it, so that all the supported versions would have the same lzcompress code. About the only reason I can see not to do it is that conceivably some third-party code somewhere might be calling pglz_compress directly; in which case an API change in a minor release would be a problem for them. On the other hand, I remain unconvinced that this problem is severe enough to justify much backporting work. AFAIK we've only seen one occurence of a problem to date.
