Summary0012598: Kernel panic not syncing with 3.10.0-514 at boot, works with 327
DescriptionAfter upgrading to 3.10.0-514.2.2 the system consistently hangs when rebooted just after the login prompt has been displayed. It crashes in different services, but with the same message:

Comm: (some process) Not tainted 3.10.0-514.2.2.el7.x_86_64 #1.
Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception

I'll upload two screenshots with more data. Reverting to the previous kernel (327) works. This is reproducible, it happens every time with the new kernel and never with the old kernel.

I have plenty of free space in /boot (70% free) and I have uninstalled and reinstalled the kernel several times.
Steps To ReproduceOn my system:
1) Upgrade from kernel 327 to 514 with yum.
2) Reboot, wait for login prompt.
3) Kernel panic.
Additional InformationUsing encrypted disks with an mdadm mirror for /root and /boot.
This is a production system, so I can't afford too much downtime for diagnostics. I have not been able to reproduce the issue elsewhere, but then I have no other system with the same hardware and configuration.

I have same issue on ProLiant DL380 G7. I don't use encrypted disks. Only MBR+LVM+xfs.
kernel 3.10.0-514.2.2 and 3.10.0-514.6.1 cause kernel panic too.

Similar issues here centos 7.2 Kernel 3.10.0-514.6.1 causes kernel panic and will not boot but the previous kernel does works which is 3.10.0-327. Although my kernel panic states unable to mount FS issue

Same issue here. Fixed it by running "yum reinstall kernel-3.10.0-514*".
