NextPrevUpTopContentsIndex Controlling the garbage collector

The functions that are most likely to be useful for controlling the GC are room, check-fragmentation, gc-generation (replacing mark-and-sweep) and try-move-in-generation.

Other potentially useful functions and macros are avoid-gc, get-gc-parameters, gc-if-needed, enlarge-generation, normal-gc, set-gc-parameters, with-heavy-allocation and try-compact-in-generation.
