This is little confusing. So if crash_kexec_post_notifiers is set but
panic_on_oops is not set, still we will return?

Should we do this only if panic_on_oops is set? IOW, how about following

if (panic_on_oops && crash_kexec_post_notifiers)
return 0;

And then also put a comment explaining the rationale.

Thanks
