I can say that the previous kernels boot just fine (3.3.0-8) and I have no
trouble with them. Any ideas on what I can look at? Maybe file a bug report?

I would try the current kernel first, 3.3.1-5, although I did not have any such problem as you report with 3.3.1-3,

no 3.3.1 is the current one, 3.3.2 is current

but the whole 3.3 line until now elaborates on the same problem
not at each boot, mostly only slower but terrible at all

i post a copy to the devel-list
maybe someone cosiders "CONFIG_RCU_FAST_NO_HZ=n" because
this is the change in 3.3 and seems to be the root cause
of all this troubles

my first bug report is now more than a month old and
there are built one kernel after the next with the
same problem

can someone please take a look at this F16 report?

* boot sometimes terrible slow
* randomly boot fails with udev crashing / timeout
* shutdown terrible slow
* partly also on physical machines but not sooo slow

since most of the boot time is consumed by udev and
the terrible slow shutdown of > 30 seconds happens
while unmounting "old..." i guess this is not only
the kernel

feels like interaction between kernel/udev/systemd

on shutdown / reboot i can randomly see each single
unmounting line for 1-2 seconds, this is odd

i have virtual machines which booted in 5-6 seconds
and are now degraded up to 1 minute

The bug report suggests this was about a kernel feature
(CONFIG_RCU_FAST_NO_HZ=y) and not related to systemd, no?
