And you didn't reboot your system after this upgrade?

Kernel panics == kernel bugs.  If you're seeing a kernel panic with
klogd, chances are that this is also the source of the segfault for
login and su.  If you didn't reboot to a new kernel that was installed
as part of the upgrade, then the gravest error you described here had
nothing to do with your upgrade.
