I don't know if this relates to your issue. The 5.4.6 kernel has been rebuilt.

Code:
Fri Dec 27 22:54:53 UTC 2019
a/kernel-generic-5.4.6-x86_64-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
a/kernel-huge-5.4.6-x86_64-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
a/kernel-modules-5.4.6-x86_64-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
ap/vim-8.2.0050-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
d/kernel-headers-5.4.6-x86-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
k/kernel-source-5.4.6-noarch-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Apparently MODULE_SIG was enabled by SECURITY_LOCKDOWN_LSM. We'll turn both
  of those off to avoid needlessly tainting the kernel.
  -LOCK_DOWN_KERNEL_FORCE_CONFIDENTIALITY n
  -LOCK_DOWN_KERNEL_FORCE_INTEGRITY n
  -LOCK_DOWN_KERNEL_FORCE_NONE y
  -MODULE_SIG_ALL n
  -MODULE_SIG_FORCE n
  -MODULE_SIG_FORMAT y
  -MODULE_SIG_HASH "sha256"
  -MODULE_SIG_KEY "certs/signing_key.pem"
  -MODULE_SIG_SHA1 n
  -MODULE_SIG_SHA224 n
  -MODULE_SIG_SHA256 y
  -MODULE_SIG_SHA384 n
  -MODULE_SIG_SHA512 n
  -SECURITY_LOCKDOWN_LSM_EARLY y
   MODULE_SIG y -> n
   SECURITY_LOCKDOWN_LSM y -> n
l/imagemagick-7.0.9_12-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.

No change here unfortunately...

Anyone found a fix yet? 5.4.7 Still has the issue. Along with the boot delay, I also noticed it takes much longer to wake up form pm-suspend.

I'm currenly running kernel-5.4.8 and prior since 5.4.0-rc have booted in < 10s on the Ryzen 7 3800X (X570 AMD mobo) and < 30s on a old Lenovo T510 laptop. wake/suspend is ok here as well. I suspect that there is less of an issue with the kernel but rather with the hardware.

I'll be loading current onto an NVME drive on the 3+ yr old i7-6850K X99 intel box soon. I'll report if I reproduce any kernel boot slowdowns.

But something has changed with the kernel, perhaps to expose a hardware issue? My fallback kernel is 5.3.18 (self compiled) with no delay in boot but my other kernel 5.4.8 (stock -current) has the 90 second delay. This delay has been seen in every version of 5.4.x since it landed in Slackware. One solution I have found is to reboot as little as possible

I wonder if it has something to do with the GTX1660Ti, since Andrew and I both have it.

P67A-G43 Mobo, i7-2600K, 16GB, GTX1660Ti, Samsung Evo 860 SSD boot drive.

I have the delay as well, on 2 different computers. But, I've been too lazy to do a kernel git bisect to find the root cause. If we really want this fixed, somebody (and I'm talking to myself here, too) should do a kernel bisect and report the problem upstream.

i915 driver here with Intel HD Graphics 620, and I haven't noticed any issues on -current (kernel 5.4.8 at present). Actually I never realized it was graphics related, but I think 5.4 has fixed the intermittent hard system locks that I used to have with the 4.19 kernel series.

In case you want to try, and use sbotools, here is what crashes my X with -current/i915 driver(don't know which card, laptop not reachable), last tried with kernel 5.4.6:
sboinstall jack DPF-Plugins
/usr/bin/Nekobi

4.19.93: No delay on boot

5.3.11: Here is where it gets weird. If I use a .config from a running 4.19.93 kernel to compile the 5.3.11 kernel, there is no delay on bootup. If, however, I use the .config from a 5.4.8 kernel that is displaying this delay behavior, then the 5.3.11 kernel will also have the same delay on boot.

So just for fun, I took the .config from a 4.19.93 kernel with no boot delay, and used it to compile a 5.4.8 kernel. Reboot.

NO DELAY

I have, for a couple of days now, begun to suspect something in .config causing this. Or maybe a new feature of newer kernels, disabled by default, but enabled in the .config that comes with the kernel?

I repeat - I now have a 5.4.8 kernel that boots with NO DELAY. Prior to my recompiling it using the .config from an older 4.19.93 kernel, there was a 90 second delay.

SO I then compared .config from one the has a delay boot, and one that does not, but there were too many differences, and the differences exceeds my level of expertise cause I have no idea what I'm looking at LOL.

I can post my .config here if anyone wants to see it.

Complete shot in the dark, I don't have the kernel or any idea what I'm really talking about, but the only delays on boot I've had were always after fiddling with framebuffer settings, like having those Tuxes on top and so forth.
Maybe something like that snuck in during the upgrade? Some new configuration, perhaps?

I'm guessing something new in the kernel that is disabled by default, but when enabled causes the delay (or vice versa...). That would explain why the same kernel, using a different .config, will delay or not delay.

Also of interest - I tried the 5.5.x kernel, and while it also had the delay, it was 70 seconds, not 90 seconds. Again, not sure what is different.

I'd be more interested in seeing the diff between the two.

Code:
diff -Naur location/to/old.config location/to/new.config

@Ook Well looks like we are getting closer to tracking this kernel "Pause" problem down, when i get a chance i will have to check this out.
