Getty hangs after upgrade to systemd 215

After an upgrade to systemd 215 I was not able to boot anymore and got messages like these for all of my virtual terminals:

[ TIME ] Timed out waiting for device dev-tty1.device.
[DEPEND] Dependency failed for Getty on tty1.

Turned out that I had an old copy of /etc/systemd/system/getty@.service, booting into recovery mode and replacing it with a symlink to /lib/systemd/system/getty@.service solved the issue.
