I did a system reconfigure today, and I have a boot failure when I use the new system profile. More specifically, after I load the kernel (6.0.10) then I get to a boot message that the kernel modules are loading. If I wait long enough, eventually I get a message "task init:1 blocked for more than 120 seconds", which repeats every two minutes or so. The keyboard still works (I can enter a newline and watch the cursor move) but I cannot enter commands. I am using a LUKS encrypted system, and the hangup occurs in between the point were the (initially decrypted) kernel loads and the time when I would enter the password to unlock the main filesystem.

My last system upgrade was on October 31. That profile still works.

I will attach my system manifest file.

Here is my system information (running under the old profile):

For additional troubleshooting, I modified my system profile by adding (kernel (specification->package "linux-libre@5.15")) to use the older kernel version. I am able to boot into that modified profile without issues. So clearly there is something broken in relationship to the upgrade to linux-libre 6.0.10.
