v3 is based on 5.5-rc2 which seems to include 20bb759a66be, and when I tested before
re-posting a few weeks ago it was still failing as usual, i.e. kernel still alive after panic.
[but please be aware that to reproduce it, you need to have only one core online and another one
panicing while starting up (while still marked offline)]
