This is the on that matters:
Mar 30 01:21:02 i2134 systemd:
dev-disk-by\x2dlabel-st10susehome.device/start timed out.
Systemd seems to be lying about the sequence of events:
LABEL=st10susehome /home ext4 noatime 1 2
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST1000DM003-1SB10C_Z9A1LQPM-part4 /home/macdata hfsplus force,uid=501,gid=100,umask=002,noatime,nofail
That fstab was created last June. I have no recollection how I got the hfs added
filesystems added to fstab, possibly YaST. nofail I'm sure I added. Search for
force in man fstab produces nothing.

Mar 30 13:54:09 i2134 systemd: home-macdata.mount: Job home-macdata.mount/start failed

/home needs to be mounted before /home/macdata can be mounted, right? So it
try to mount /home/macdata until mounting /home succeeds. When I commented out the
hfs lines in fstab there was no stop in emergency mode on next boot, but the 15.1
Grub menu appeared instead of the Grub 15.0 menu. On next boot, the Grub 15.0 menu
was back, but it stopped in emergency again:

Yet, /boot/efi is mounted, accessible and has 95% freespace.
This is multiboot. 15.1 has no such mounting trouble. Not getting the expected
boot screen on reboot or power up has been randomly occurring ever since the
upgrade from Snow Leopard to El Capitan. My forum thread about this iMac ordeal:
But I don't understand the timestamps, almost
everything is logged at "Mar 30 01:20:50".
I have no real idea. I suspect a defective firmware upgrade accompanied the
Snow Leopard to El Capitan upgrade, but no idea how to find any proof.
You have almost no space for the log:
Mar 30 01:20:57 i2134 systemd-journald: System
journal (/var/log/journal/cffc04f423524d27ba260972e6732ea5) is 3.0M, max 1.0M, 0B free.
This too has to be bogus. Freespace on / is consistently 74%.
Installed RAM is 4GB, same as maximum supported RAM.

This is an iMac. It apparently has no BIOS facility to disable unneeded devices.
AFAICT, b43* is for (unneeded/unwanted) wireless. I found nothing in systemctl
grep net of list-units or list-unit-files to suggest how to disable attempts to
use wireless. So I've been ignoring those b43* messages that to me are just noise.
