Thanks. I figured out WTF happend. LOL.

Updated systemd from 244 to 245.6 again, and did not reboot or crash or whatever.

systemd on daemon-reload decided to restart a bunch of units,
_including_ plymouth stuff. And this started plymouth-start.service,
switched to a text / dmesg console with the boot splash, what looked
like a crash/failed reboot.

That's all. Alt-F2 and I'm back in X and everything works.

We're good to go with systemd upgrade.
