Package: systemd
Version: 229-4
Severity: normal

Hi,
since updating to 229 a couple of weeks ago I'm seeing these during early boot:

Apr 28 19:48:21 bogon systemd[1]: systemd-hwdb-update.service: Start request repeated too quickly.
Apr 28 19:48:21 bogon systemd[1]: Failed to start Rebuild Hardware Database.

Apr 28 19:48:21 bogon systemd[1]: Failed to start File System Check on Root Device.
Apr 28 19:48:21 bogon systemd[1]: sys-fs-fuse-connections.mount: Start request repeated too quickly.

Apr 28 19:48:21 bogon systemd[1]: Failed to mount Virtual Machine and Container Storage.

which makes the boot look scary due to lots of failed units but the
system boots ok otherwise. Looking at the services individually I see
the error as well:

# systemctl status systemd-binfmt.service
● systemd-binfmt.service - Set Up Additional Binary Formats
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/systemd-binfmt.service; static; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)
Condition: start condition failed at Do 2016-04-28 19:48:21 CEST; 10min ago
           none of the trigger conditions were met
     Docs: man:systemd-binfmt.service(8)
           man:binfmt.d(5)

It would be great if the services would start up as expected.

systemd-delta has:

# systemd-delta 
[EXTENDED]   /lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service → /lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service.d/debian.conf
[EXTENDED]   /lib/systemd/system/systemd-timesyncd.service → /lib/systemd/system/systemd-timesyncd.service.d/disable-with-time-daemon.conf

Please let me know if you require any further information. I went
through the bugreports but couldn't find anything related but upstream
has this:
