  tmpfiles being slow is nothing new, actually. Take a look at this:
It's my test machine with btrfs / on old disk (20GB IDE Maxtor).
tmpfiles take 30s to run, without any special configuration.
  Oh, and its F15 system.  Is it worth putting few printf() inside
systemd-tmpfiles to see where's the time spent?
