This is a Guix init issue, not "really" a kernel panic. As you can see,
there is some kind of error in the Scheme code being run at boot time,
but instead of being dropped into a debug shell, it exits, which causes
the kernel to panic.
This is because Guile is running as PID 1, that is, it is the first
process the kernel starts. PID 1 is kinda special and AFAIK it is not
allowed to exit, ever. Otherwise you get that panic.
