Bug#763601: systemd: booting is extremely slow depending on order of "console" arguments to kernel

I have the same problem on my jessie machine. The only difference is, 
that in contrast to Sven, I get the serial getty after booting was 
finished, but no status lines on the serial console during the boot 
process, after changing GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="console=tty0 
console=ttyS2,115200n8r" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="console=ttyS2,115200n8r 

By the way, the problem even caused that my computer could not complete 
the boot process at all and instead, because of timeouts when waiting 
for services, started a rescue shell when I did not connect to the 
serial console in time. At least that could be solved by installing 
newer lvm2 packages, available in snapshot.debian.org, from February 
2016 and upgrading to systemd from jessie-backports.
