My list of disabled and masked systemd service files.

This issue appeared after a factory update last week.

My system boots ok when I remove /home from /etc/fstab. After boot, I can mount
it manually and then log in, everything works.

But when I add /home partition using yast, which adds it to /etc/fstab, systemd
fails to boot. If I enable recovery mode in GRUB, I see these messages:

A start job is running for dev-disk-somelongdiskIDpart3.device (for a long
Timed out waiting for device dev-disk-somelongdiskIDpart3.device
[DEPEND] Dependency failed for /home
[DEPEND] Dependency failed for Local File Systems
Welcome to emergency mode!

Then I can do nothing, I have to boot from live media and remove /home
partition from /etc/fstab to be able to use my workstation again.

When something like this happens, systemd should still allow root to login, and
not freeze completely.

I attach a list of disabled and masked systemd service files, maybe I need to
enable some of them to be able to mount /home?
