I don't have any old kernels around.
Yes, I believe this to be a regression, since I don't recall having this slow boot long time ago.

Interestingly GRUB to LightDM with systemd is 45 seconds.
While GRUB to LightDM with upstart is 10 seconds (then I have to wait about half a minute for the USB devices to get initialised)

Since the slow delayed boot remained even after plugging out my USB keyboard and USB mouse, it seems the culprit is the internal USB hub on the Intel Z87 (Haswell) chipset.
