Long systemd pauses mounting local filesystem/swap

I just spent a long and frustrating night trying to recover my system
from what I believed was a complete hang on startup. It turns out that
it was just pausing for several minutes.
I was finally able to track it down to these two lines in my /etc/fstab:
UUID=67a74931-48ac-4bdd-91d2-3e788398d472 /boot ext4 defaults 1 2
/dev/mapper/root_vg-swap_lv swap swap defaults 0 0
Commenting out these two lines enables the system to come up at its
I tried using the filesystem LABEL for my /boot filesystem, but that
also caused the delay.
Interestingly, this *does* work:
/dev/md0 /boot ext4 defaults 1 2
/dev/root_vg/swap_lv swap swap defaults 0 0
I'm way too tired to file a decent bug report now, but definitely
wondering if anyone else has seen anything like this.
