I have not reproduced in GCE myself. We did get some confirmation
that removing dracut-fips does make the problem less dire (but I
wouldn't call a 4 minute boot a win, but booting in 4 minutes is
better than not booting at all). Specifically systemd calls libgcrypt
before it even opens the log with fips there, and this is before
virtio-rng modules could even load. Right now though, we are looking
at pretty much any possible options as the majority of people are
calling for me to backout the patches completely from rawhide.
