Frequent server reboot after docker installation


I have installed the docker on my gitlab machine, which is a high end server.
HP ProLiant DL360 Gen9, 56 CPU cores(each Intel® Xeon® CPU E5-2697 v3 @ 2.60GHz), 256G Memory, 8 x 800G HDD.

OS: RHEL 6.5
Kernel: 2.6.32-504.el6.x86_64
Docker-engine: docker-engine-1.7.1-1.el6.x86_64
Device-Mapper: device-mapper-1.02.117-7.el6.x86_6.

After the docker installation with gitlab-runner container, server got rebooted many times. As analyzed the logs with vendor, kernel panic occurred due to docker processes which triggered the reboot forcefully.

    Kernel panic in list_del() or list_add() with cgroup_event_wake() as the calling function

Please let me know, is this occurred by any compatibility problems between docker and machine ?
Also, if anyone faced the same problem and solved, please provide the procedures to fix.

Thanks and Regards,
