Description of problem:
Upgrading from FC27 to FC28 failed with an exit to emergency mode. The log files contained thousands of lines like this:
May 02 10:32:27 localhost.localdomain systemd-udevd: Process 'hid2hci --met
hod=dell --devpath=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb3/3-1/3-1.2/3-1.2:1.0' fa
iled with exit code 1.
This seemed to cause the system to run very slowly, and causes a timeout mapping the home file system logical volume.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC28 on system with this PCI device.
systemd-udev should not be continually retrying whatever it is doing to this device, and slowing the system down.
I was able to work around this by altering the fstab entry for the home filesystem. Adding x-systemd.device-timeout=3m allowed the system to boot normally after the upgrade.
The system still continues to run slowly with the log file filling up at the rate of about 50 new entries a second. Some are being suppressed to to limiting...
This message is a reminder that Fedora 28 is nearing its end of life.
On 2019-May-28 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 28. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '28'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 28 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 28 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2019-05-28. Fedora 28 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
