Description of problem:
User skiava of it.fedoracommunity.org, reported that the boot time increased after the upgrade via dnf-system-upgrade (from F21, to F22). The time reported by systemd was ~57 seconds. Around the internet, I've read about other people noticing that.

I think that the root cause might be gdm 3.16: replacing it with lightdm resulted in a faster boot (~30 seconds).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora 22.

Actual results:
1. Boot is slower than with Fedora 21.

Expected results:
1. Boot should be, if possible, faster.

Additional info:
- We've tried the switch from Wayland to XOrg, but this didn't solve the issue for gdm.

- I'm unable to reproduce the issue, since, unlike the original reporter, my system is equipped with an SSD and Fedora 23.

Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
