5.3-STABLE not saving panics ?

I don't see savecore being run on boot. I manually ran it and it said:
savecore: No dumps found.
The panics are something along panic: ain't going nowhere without my
init! (I'm forcing these by sending lots of unknown signals to init)
The other (real) panics are random (process-wise). I don't have much
more info about these as I never get to see the server screen and
they're not being logged..
