This is normal behaviour for Yosemite for users with FileVault enabled (i.e. Your Mac's primary disk is encrypted). The authentication process is done earlier because without authorisation from the user the OS cannot access the rest of the disk. This is a good thing, and I think you are (mostly) mistaken that it takes longer to boot up — since now you are ...
