    Subject: [PATCH] lz4: Fix confused version check
    Older LZ4 library versions used a version number > 100 and not the
    current x.y.z versioning scheme.  This results in version 122 being
    numberically higher than the check we have liblz4 > 1.7.1.  And
    since that old version (122) does not have the LZ4_compress_default(),
    the building explodes later on.
    This patch enhances the version check to also ensure the version
    number is lower than 100.  In addition the function checking we
    had was not triggered if system library was found via pkg-config,
    so this have now been reworked to really check if we have at least
    two of the most important LZ4 functions - as long as a system
    library have been found or been accepted via the LZ4_{CFLAGS,LIBS}
    There are more ways to check for functions in autoconf.  I opted
    for AC_CHECK_LIB() instead of AC_CHECK_FUNC{,S}() as the latter
    ones does not test if a function exists in a specific library. This
    have the downside of needing to tests instead of AC_CHECK_FUNCS()
    which could test for more functions in one go.  We also do not
    overwrite the LZ4_LIBS variable on success, as that could change
    already set library paths (-L)
    Finally, a stupid typo got fixed as well.
