I'm pretty sure Fedora is hitting this in our VMs. I just spent some
time debugging an issue of a boot delay with someone from the
infrastructure team where it would take upwards of 2 minutes to boot.
If someone holds down a key, it boots in 4 seconds. There's a qemu
reproducer at
I suggested a cat on the keyboard as a workaround.

Independently, we also got a report of a boot hang in GCE with 4.16.4
where as 4.16.3 works which corresponds to the previous report of a
stable regression. This was just via IRC so I didn't have time to
dig into this.
