  Boot slow, "scanning for btrfs filesystems" takes 100 seconds

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I installed 14.10 and used btrfs for /home.  Later, I did a clean install of 15.04, using the same /home partition.
  Ever since then, boots have been agonizingly slow; all the delay appears to be while the message
  "scanning for btrfs filesystems" is diplayed early in boot.

  The system is an i7 with one disk:

  root@i7:~# fdisk /dev/sda
  Disk /dev/sda: 931.5 GiB, 1000204886016 bytes, 1953525168 sectors
  Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
  Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
  I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
  Disklabel type: dos

  /dev/sda2      ext4      57542652  10103624  44492980  19% /
  /dev/sda6      btrfs    840043520 172076728 665321064  21% /home

  I'll attach a bootchart, but I suspect the btrfs delay happens before
  the bootchart starts?
