I dug a little further. I have enabled lockdep to see if it can find
any deadlocks, and nothing comes up.
I also turned to sysrq-D (show locks held) - no locks are held at the
point of hang.
sysrq-T (show task state) shows the following userspace processes running:
systemd, udevd (several threads/instances), systemd-stdout-,
systemd-kmsg-sy, plymouthd. (they are all epolling stuff)
Can you confirm that at this point, those tasks should still be
running (and should not have been killed by the mass kill of processes
that just happened)? Just wondering if systemd is waiting for them to
die, or is waiting on some other condition.
Another observation: after waiting several minutes,
systemd-stdout-syslog-bridge.service generates a notification message
and seems to nudge systemd a little closer to completing the shutdown
routine (please see 387.600571 in the full logs below).
Full log of startup, shutdown, and sysrq dumps at point of first hang
(before systemd-stdout-syslog-bridge.service wakeup), and second hang,
then sysrq dumps again:
(Just FYI: A couple of things have changed since the last mails: I
updated to systemd-36 and I updated the kernel to linus master, and
patched in https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/8/9/318 which fixed warnings
caused when I enabled lockdep)

OK, done this for the new log. here are my observations (sorry if any
of them are stupid!):
NetworkManager job is marked done at 60.850964 but logs messages afterwards?
Weird ordering of messages here:
[ 61.831071] systemd: Child 1464 belongs to var-lib-random\x2dseed.mount
[ 61.837978] systemd: var-lib-random\x2dseed.mount mount process
exited, code=exited status=0
[ 61.847778] systemd: var-lib-random\x2dseed.mount changed
unmounting -> dead
[ 61.890550] systemd: Job var-lib-random\x2dseed.mount/stop
[ 62.298212] systemd: Got SIGCHLD for process 1477 (umount)
[ 62.305426] systemd: Child 1477 died (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
[ 62.312138] systemd: Child 1477 belongs to var-lib-dbus.mount
[ 62.318182] systemd: var-lib-dbus.mount mount process exited,
[ 62.327267] systemd: var-lib-dbus.mount changed unmounting -> dead
[ 62.370552] systemd: Job var-lib-dbus.mount/stop finished, result=done
[ 62.955961] systemd: var-lib-random\x2dseed.mount changed dead -> mounted
[ 62.967152] systemd: var-lib-dbus.mount changed dead -> mounted
Why do they get marked as mounted after being unmounted?
The other similar mounts all got 'collected', these 2 did not.
Is it normal for the systemd-kmsg-syslogd service to be *started*
quite late in the shutdown process?
[ 63.062468] systemd: Incoming traffic on syslog.socket
[ 63.067936] systemd: Trying to enqueue job
[ 63.076120] systemd: Installed new job
systemd-kmsg-syslogd.service/start as 343
[ 63.083842] systemd: Enqueued job
systemd-kmsg-syslogd.service/start as 343
[ 63.091135] systemd: syslog.socket changed listening -> running
[ 63.097566] systemd: About to execute: /lib/systemd/systemd-kmsg-syslogd
[ 63.140299] systemd: Forked /lib/systemd/systemd-kmsg-syslogd as 1510
[ 63.148024] systemd: systemd-kmsg-syslogd.service changed dead -> running
Every single "Installed new job" line has a corresponding "Job foo
finished, result=done" line (I checked carefully).
However, there are some other inconsistencies (not sure how relevant):
Some services have a "cgroup is empty" message logged before or after
they are marked as done (such as prefdm.service, avahi-daemon.service_
bu some services have no such line logged (e.g. sshd-keygen.service,
Some mounts/services are "collected" (e.g. console-kit-daemon.service,
var-spool.mount) and others are not (e.g. crond.service,
I can't see anything that tries to shut down
systemd-stdout-syslog-bridge.service. Is that normal? Might systemd be
waiting for it?
Thats all I see.

Not sure. Its the standard x86 legacy serial driver - nothing special.
The default console is indeed a serial console (thats how I'm
logging). Those messages go away if I use tty0 as the default console
(but the hang doesn't). And in fact they don't always appear (e.g. no
occurrences in the log referenced in this mail).
Any new ideas?
Thanks a lot for your help on this.
