yes, I think it's not a problem . (I never had disk corruption when HA restart vm and source server is kernel panic).

But it's just annoying to wait 4min for reboot (and not documented)

Wow - that is really strange behavior - they simply overwrite user configured 
values on kernel panic. 

On the other side, all user space processes are stopped, so it does not really 
harm?
