had the something similar(15 sec pause during boot)
ended up being(for me at-least) in /lib/udev/write_net_rules,
removing this get a smooth boot, but there were other caseses
that this was not the case(instead was something in /etc/udev/*)

to debug add a --debug when starting udev i.g.
udev --debug etc...(should show info on screen)
