There's a patch for these in current -mm.
For now, you can read kernel/panic.c comments:

* 'P' - Proprietary module has been loaded.
* 'F' - Module has been forcibly loaded.
* 'S' - SMP with CPUs not designed for SMP.
* 'R' - User forced a module unload.
* 'M' - Machine had a machine check experience.
* 'B' - System has hit bad_page.
