runs the garbage collector and returns the number of reference cycles found(and deleted)

SQRESULT sq_resurrectunreachable(HSQUIRRELVM v)

runs the garbage collector and pushes an array in the stack containing all unreachable object found. If no unreachable object is found, null is pushed instead. This function is meant to help debugging reference cycles.
