Implement watchdog on kernel panic

Sometimes droplet fails with kernel panic.
If that happen, server will be offline forever, unless owner reboot it via control panel.

I think you should implement watchdog. Its a basic feature. You cant provide quality of service without simple monitoring.

    I was about to post a new suggestion saying 'Allow booting with panic=15 to reboot upon kernel panic' when I found this

    At the very least it should be possible to allow adding the panic option to the kernel boot parameters so the kernel automatically reboots after x amount of seconds after a panic
