Now you can run LibreOffice on RISC-V

Hi all,

I am very happy to share this progress with you: LibreOffice is able
to run on RISC-V Linux now! Although tons of bugs and crashes are
expected currently, we successfully created a document and saved it.
It works on RISC-V now!

An initial patchset has been submitted to the LibreOffice upstream:
https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/137445

Based on the patchset, we can build, run, create a new doc file and
save it without crashing. No other tests have been executed yet, and
we are continuously improving the patchset.

The attachments are two snapshots from the patch author.

Reviews, comments, and follow-up patches are welcome! We're looking
forward to collaborating with all of you. :)
