FWIW, you can pretty much disable udev-settle.service with systemd. It's
only really needed for some exotic file systems like LVM that really are
not designed sensibly and assume that there exists a point in time when
everything has settled. This is arguably not a good design and most
other similar setups work better.

So you can always try disabling udev-settle.service
