When you say "produce a core dumps" what exactly you see. How do you
know it produces the kernel dump?

After the crash happens kernel cannot write anything to disk nor send
via network. Dealing with disk/network/... requires valid kernel data
structures and you don't have them anymore.

Once kernel crashed it has only one option - reboot.

Check kdump https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Kdump - it is
probably what you are looking for.
