Set your sources.list back to stable, then

apt-get install libc6/stable

Use (run that command with the -s option as well first, to make sure 
that apt doesn't do anything too drastic to your system). 

To install the latest version of libxml2 (if you need it) get the source 
code from unstable, then recompile it on stable with dpkg-buildpackage.
I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
If you don't know what it is, either ignore it or visit www.gnupg.org
My PGP key was last signed 6/10/2003 please download my key again if
it is more recent than your copy. If you use GPG, *please* talk to
me to sign it. The key is keyID E2B2CAD1 on pgp.mit.edu
