Excellent!

Kernel panic response is similar to that sig some people use in which Aristoteles sez "I drank WHAT?%$#@^". I've seen it happen when I mutilated kernel source code or tried to make the kernel to load stuff that ain't there. Generally speaking, any issue the kernel needs to address and can't solve. Here's a LQ search for kernel and panic if you want to see what can make a kernel go insane.
