Are you loading this while in X or on the console? If X, can you try

I don't believe there are any changes between 7.0 and stable that would
result in a panic under an earlier version. You could try recompiling
your kernel with "options GDB/KDB/DDB" and "makeoptions DEBUG=-g" and
see if you get dropped to the debugger, if you do the result of the
command "bt" would be very useful.
