  corrupted or the output buffer is not large enough, then 0 (zero)

  Compression level can be specified in parameter level. At the moment, 
  only level 1 and level 2 are supported.
  Level 1 is the fastest compression and generally useful for short data.
  Level 2 is slightly slower but it gives better compression ratio.

  Note that the compressed data, regardless of the level, can always be
  decompressed using the function fastlz_decompress above.
