So, after digging into this deeper I came to the conclusion that
setting CONFIG_DEBUG_SERIAL=n in SeaBIOS' .config was the culprit.
Could setting CONFIG_DEBUG_SERIAL=y be blocking?
SeaBIOS will try to wait for space in the serial buffer when it
reports that it is full. If you don't actually have a serial port, or
if the serial port thinks it is blocked, then it could cause a delay.
