My brother's iMac had a Kernel Panic today. I am not quite sure how to interpret the log, can somebody help me with interpreting this info so we can trace down the culprit, please.?

For those in the known, given the readout, does it elicit action.?

Thanks in advance.

Meh, looks like a concurrency bug in software updating. I wouldn't worry about it, the latest version of software update is buggy in this regard. I don't get panics like that, I get it locking up and using 100% of a core in the background. But forget about it, and hope the next update fixes it.

If the panics go away you might try making sure that you're running the current versions of each.
Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
