Well that didn't work. My Fatal Trap 12 just sits there until we get it
plugged in and run a couple of fsck on it.

So why doesn't 5.4 reboot on panics?  And is this also an issue with 6.x?

What are the best kernel options for rebooting after a panic?

I am going to try these. Will this do the trick? Not sure about the
restartable_panics so I figured I would ask.

I used to get reboots by default. Or at least as I recall I did. Did the
default for PANIC_REBOOT_WAIT_TIME become -1 in this branch?
