[Gc] GC_set_free_space_divisor api change on purpose?

I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, but asking to make sure.
In gc <= 7.1, gc.h contained:
GC_API GC_word GC_set_free_space_divisor(GC_word value);
and in 7.2-alpha4 anyway, now has
GC_API void GC_CALL GC_set_free_space_divisor(GC_word);
GC_API GC_word GC_CALL GC_get_free_space_divisor(void);
Was this api change (at least to GC_set_free_space_divisor's return value)
I'm asking because of downstream bug,
where this change causes kaya build failures. If this was intentional,
should be fairly straight-forward to patch kaya for the new gc behavior.
