systemd fails to boot most of the time

OK, the problem is here indeed. The only fstab entry that really needs 
`noauto,x-systemd.automount` to boot is swap. Maybe when I deleted and 
recreated the swap I have done something wrong in the process, or 
systemd left something like obsolete unit files hanging around...

I can boot now with:
UUID=419caf7b-d856-4668-b02f-e8d0a292e768   none   swap 
sw,noauto,x-systemd.automount   0   0
