[arch-general] What causes the 3-5 sec delay before :: running early hooks (udev)?

   After recent updates to 3.4.3 and systemd-tools, etc., I have a new delay 
on boot. The system just seems to sit for any extra 5 secs or so with a blank 
screen after switching from grub to start booting. The delay happens before 
the first line:

:: running early hooks (udev)

is written to the screen. Does anybody know what is causing this? initramfs 
decompression? New systemd-tools udev stuff? After updating 3-4 boxes, this 
delay period is notable. Just curious whether this can be tweaked or 
eliminated. Thanks for any info.
