collectgarbage("count") now calls LUA_COUNT and LUA_COUNTB.
If your lua_Number happens to be a floating point type then
you even get to see the result of this change:

$ lua51rc1 -e 'print(gcinfo(), collectgarbage("count"))'
17      17.4833984375
$ lua51rc1 -e 'print(gcinfo()*1024, collectgarbage("count")*1024)'
17408   18043
