Subject[PATCH] panic: Call console_verbose in panic

Most distros turn the console verbosity down and that means a backtrace after
a panic never makes it to the console. I assume we haven't seen this because
a panic is often preceeded by an oops which will have called console_verbose.
There are however a lot of places we call panic directly, and they are

Use console_verbose like we do in the oops path to ensure a directly called
panic will print a backtrace.
