    panic_notifier_list, like all entries defined via
    notifier_chain_register, is run in priority order, with LIFO order
    within priority. Register machine_panic first with priority INT_MIN
    and it gets called last.

    Which reduces your problem to "which one of the 57 initcall levels do I
    use for registering machine_panic first on the panic_notifier_list"?
