Yes, GPLv2+_or_LGPLv3+ is a weaker license than LGPLv2+.

But the module is currently under LGPLv3+; that's what stated in the module
description [1].

To satisfy Bastien's request, it would be sufficient to make this change:

diff --git a/modules/explicit_bzero b/modules/explicit_bzero
index 81d41d1..08fd3e4 100644
--- a/modules/explicit_bzero
+++ b/modules/explicit_bzero
@@ -23,7 +23,7 @@ Include:

The only contributor who made significant changes to this module after
it was taken from glibc (where it is under LGPLv2+) is Paul Eggert.
Therefore he has to decide.
