A bug (https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/19311) was opened with Oracle
concerning this issue that has broken the AUR package

If any of the devs have any idea what could have impacted Host/Guest I/O to
the point it takes 10 minutes to boot a Archlinux guest to a simple text
console, I would welcome your input here or on the bug report.

Let me know if there is any reason to open an Arch bug -- doubtful since it is
an AUR package that is impacted.
