log from serial console

Description of problem:
I have used plymouth:debug kernel line on real hardware without problems. But when I try to use it in KVM (virt-manager, libvirt), it just halts the boot, waiting indefinitely. The CPU is not in a loop. I can hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete and it restarts cleanly. But that's all I can do.

The few last lines from serial console:
