Looking at it a bit more closely, it appears that postgresql

It gets so bad that a simple "dmesg" takes 10-20 seconds to start,

Actually slower than serial console...

This is totally unusable :(

Might you be emulating PIO? That would certainly suck. The device model is supposed to support (virtual) DMA though.
