Kernel freezes instead of panicking

I have an Ubuntu system on which I have compiled a kernel and booted into
it. I mostly based the config on the old configuration.

I expect that running this command [1] should lead to a kernel panic but
strangely it does not and it only leads to freeze. I don't see the kernel
panic messages but the system does freeze and I have to use the power
button to reboot. It is possible that I am supposed to configure something
but have not, maybe I missing something. Could someone tell me what I am
missing out on?

Thanks in advance.
