Since I upgraded to Emacs 27.1, its memory consumption grows without
bounds, to the point that it gets OOM-killed after just a couple of
hours (meaning that it’s used most of the 16G of RAM of my laptop!).

Does that ring a bell to anyone?  I have 50+ ^emacs- packages in my
profile; any clues on what could be the cause before diving further?

Same here.  A couple of days later, I can confirm that my Emacs has
become sane again.
