I see them. I think I'll wait this out and see what happens. It's not a deal breaker.

It is indeed, but disconnecting it didn't help, it just shows some other USB related message before it stalls....

TAADAA It's the kernel. The 5.3.11 kernel does NOT do this. The 5.3.15 kernel DOES. As does the 5.4 series. Something was done to the kernel after the 5.3.11 that is causing this delay. Not sure what....

Nice catch! On my own system looks like my 'safety' kernel will stay with 5.3.1...

Also, regarding "why 5.4?", many report substantial performance increase, as much as a measurable 10% actual but more in "feel", with 5.4.x kernels. Since 5.5 is already under development and given past history it seems like 5.4.x will be quickly refined and improved. I'm running 5.4.2 on -Current very nicely and 5.4.1, both compiled from source, on 14.2 Multilib for several days now with nothing but goodness. That said, I'm so far unsuccessful at compiling 5.4.2 on 14.2 and have yet to grasp why, but I suspect it'll get there even if it is in the form of 5.4.3. FWIW I waited until 5.0.x hit 5.0.20 before I tried it and by then it was very solid. I am quite pleased with such early stages of 5.4.

Aside - I've been reading a lot of posts with what looks like problems with some GPU on CPU configurations and would suggest it may even be possible that combo will end up a failed experiment. Unless you run absolutely headless, graphics is hugely important and also hugely complex. Chipsets that do modern graphics are incredibly dense and complicated and also generate a LOT of heat, as well as gobbling RAM resources. It may turn out it is quite limiting to try to combine such elements on a hardware level.

I'm running the 5.4.6 kernel on two machines. One of them has this 90 second delay, the other does not. I'm not sure why.

So interesting enough, I reverted to the 5.3.11 kernel today and much to surprise, it exhibited the same 90 second delay:

[ 10.770003] hid-generic 0003:045E:0039.0003: input,hidraw2: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Microsoft Microsoft 5-Button Mouse with IntelliEye(TM)] on usb-0000:03:00.0-13/input0
[ 102.126271] Adding 3980284k swap on /dev/sda2. Priority:-2 extents:1 across:3980284k SSFS

Prior to this, I was able to boot the 5.3.11 without this happening. I wonder if there is a .config setting change somewhere that can cause this?
