As far as I can tell, this is normal behavior; the aufs/squashfs
filesystem is getting mounted at this point, and it probably requires
uncompressing the inode table or something like that. You might test
if this goes faster with the "-noI" or "-noF" options.
On real hardware, although the machine is slower than the one I run
qemu on, this hangs for a significantly shorter amount of time.
Something to consider.
