glibc 2.27 is now available in experimental.

Indeed, we can't support riscv64 in glibc before the support for this
architecture is available in dpkg/stable. Otherwise the package will
just be rejected on ftpmaster with an unknown architecture issue.
That said it should be relatively straightforward to add riscv64
support with the following patch, followed with a "debian/rules

riscv64 should not require any architecture specific option to be passed
to configure. If it is the case, a debian/sysdeps/riscv64.mk should be
added for that. We can already merge that part in the package, even
without dpkg/stable support.
