How to debug a Linux kernel crash like a pro

I found a very nice tutorial about debugging the Linux kernel problems. It shows you what it takes to search for and solve the Linux kernel problem whenever your cloud server or dedicated Linux server goes down due to the Linux kernel panics.

From the blog post:

Having done quite a bit of kernel fuzzing and debugging lately I’ve decided to take one of the very latest crashes and write up the whole process from start to finish as I work through it. As you will see, I’m not very familiar with the site of this particular crash, the block layer. Being familiar with some existing kernel code helps, of course, since you recognise a lot of code patterns, but the kernel is so large that nobody can be familiar with everything and the crashes found by trinity and syzkaller can show up almost anywhere.
