Could be

	d = max(longest, d);

Is this to flush caches? Maybe indicate that in the comment.

This is an atomic notifier, but the notifier function takes a mutex,
which sleeps. It should use spinlocks, and never sleep, given that panic
can be called from anywhere.

Maybe should be unsigned long to match other "timeouts" in the kernel.
