I think we still have a couple of fixes to backport, as mentioned in the previous discussion [1] (5.1 patch for bugfix). 
By referencing the 8u upstreaming of aarch64 port [2], I feel it's still possible to have some refectoring/performance fixes in the current riscv-port branch before upstreaming. 
For example, support for RVC extension is still experimental in this branch as compared to product in jdk mainline. AFAIK, the current off-the-shelf RV64 chips/boards are all equipped with this extension. 
But before we proceed, we will need the jdk-update project maintainer's confirmation about that. I see similar questions has been raised before [3].
