How can this happen?

After a hard reset it booted fine again.

I guess you have the 5 min time out and the 'mouting /sysroot' issue.
That measn the btrfs journal got corrupted (Ludwig posted a mail a few

next snapshot).

The fastest way to recover is to either
- boot an older kernel

Hope that helps you to get going again
