It is reproducible. With the above parameters the VM hangs for long at - Starting Switch Root... -
But eventually continues to boot and show the login prompt after > 3 hours.

[13494.227608] systemd[1]: Startup finished in 2.039s (kernel) + 3.288s (initrd) + 3h 44min 48.899s (userspace) = 3h 44min 54.227s.

systemd(1) is is taking 3:44 hours it seems. Another glitch is network.service fails to come up. :(

  - Is there a way to see why/where is it spending 3 hours?
  - Could enforcing=0 be a clue to maybe something is up with SELinux?

Any suggestions would be helpful.
