node failure is a simple, black and white, fact

corosync *exists* to to detect node failure

oops is not necessarily node failure; if you *want* it to be, then you
sysctl -w kernel.panic_on_oops=1

(gfs has also had it's own mount options over the years to force this
behavior, even if the sysctl isn't set properly; it's a common issue.
It seems panic_on_oops has had inconsistent default values over various
releases, sometimes 0, sometimes 1; setting it has historically been part
of cluster/gfs documentation since most customers want it to be 1.)
