Same here. I always go through menuconfig or xconfig even on minor revisions. Sometimes a new feature or driver is added, something can have moved or whatever. Once you do that a few times you get quicker with just looking if everything is in place. Otherwise one can explain a panic also by a missing command line parameter in grub.conf (menu.lst). Or a specific issue with your HW and a new/reworked driver. But that should be rare. On should check all the output possible when having a panic. Most times I also just forgot an FS in the compilation on my root. Or I moved HDDs around and booted without use of UUIDs.
