Could you try to boot with udev in debug mode? I'm not sure if it's same 
as with Fedora distribution. It should be enough to put 'debug' keyword 
among kernel parameters, though I'm not sure about Arch Linux distribution.

Paste udev debug messages here. Look for lines containing pvscan but the 
reason for such timeout may be completely lvm2 unrelated.

Also I'm slightly confused here. Do we speak about system w/o systemd 
involved at all? Or do Arch Linux boot to initramfs w/o systemd and 
switch to systemd after root being actually mounted?

And on last question, do you ship upstream udev rules or do you install 
Arch Linux specific rules?
