Plymouth may not actually be part of the problem, but you might try killing
it first and see if it helps.  It's not needed after startup anyway, but for
some reason Ubuntu (and apparently Mint) leaves it running.  I have one
older machine that still has Ubuntu, and plymouthd takes 5% of the CPU even
though it does nothing, so I kill it automatically with a script in cron.hourly.
