Updated to 19; now kernel panic on boot. No log

Updated to F19, kernel-3.12.5-200.fc19.x86_64.

On boot I get a kernel panic around [2.2]. The trace that's on the 
screen is about smp, timers, hpet. Can't read quickly enough to see what 
actually happened.

/var/log/messages has no log of the kernel boot. Shouldn't there be one?

rsyslogd.conf seems to be set to put it all in syslog:

# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!
*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none                /var/log/messages

I can boot with the F18 kernel. syslog there shows logging started right 
at boot:

Or does the error about the D-Bus connection cause logging to fail?

Any help appreciated.
