Sure, but why don't you load the dlm + configfs module not via a
module-load.d snippet, knowing that the Debian kernel doesn't have it

See the upstream bug report you referenced:
Either the module should be compiled in, or software requiring it should
make sure to load the module itself, ideally by shipping a
modules-load.d snippet.
