Should be CRITICAL.

Theinstallation is with LVM and LUKS.

What are the details of the kernel panic such as the function that caused it and the backtrace?
Have you tried any other 4.13.x series kernels successfully or otherwise?

I have no clue what function cused the kernel panic.
The output was so fast and long, that I only can see the rest of it.
When I had the problem with 4.13.3 I tried to use videocamera to record it all.
The camera was too slow for it.
If the standard-kernel allows slower output via boot-paramer I could try it again.

When downgrading, I used the following command:
# pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/linux-4.12.13-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/r8168-8.044.02-19-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

That's the newest kernel before 4.13.3, that I could found in the pacman-cache.

The r8168 was necessary, because it was a dependency.
Possibly the problem is located there?

What else information can I provide and how?

There should be some hopefully useful information left on the screen such as https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1713237#p1713237
Can you scroll back with Shift+PageUp?

ok, looks like the r8168 has to do with the problem...

...can't scroll back. It's completely dead.

If you boot with the r8168 module blacklisted on the command line does the error persist?

When disabling the r8168-module, the system comes up. :-)
