Well you would be well advised to take a backup (especially of the root filesystem) before patching in case it goes wrong.

How do you backup this system now?

I would recommend taking a ufsdump (using fssnap and ufsdump commands) to either a tape drive or over the network via NFS to another system. I would also ensure that you have a copy of the vtoc (virtual table of contents) (using the prtvtoc command). Having that is priceless in the event that recovery is necessary. Once you've done that you have a full copy of your data even if, at this time, you don't know how to restore it.

Once that's done you can apply your required patches and/or Oracle recommended patchset.

EDIT-PATCH(1)						      General Commands Manual						     EDIT-PATCH(1)

NAME
edit-patch, add-patch - tool for preparing patches for Debian source packages SYNOPSIS
edit-patch path/to/patch add-patch path/to/patch DESCRIPTION
edit-patch is a wrapper script around the Quilt, CDBS, and dpatch patch systems. It simplifies the process of preparing and editing patches to Debian source packages and allows the user to not have to be concerned with which patch system is in use. Run from inside the root directory of the source package, edit-patch can be used to edit existing patches located in debian/patches. It can also be used to incorporate new patches. If pointed at a patch not already present, it will copy the patch to debian/patches in the correct format for the patch system in use. Next, the patch is applied and a subshell is opened in order to edit the patch. Typing exit or pressing Ctrl-d will close the subshell and launch an editor to record the debian/changelog entry. edit-patch is integrated with the Bazaar and Git version control systems. The patch will be automatically added to the tree, and the debian/changelog entry will be used as the commit message. If no patch system is present, the patch is applied inline, and a copy is stored in debian/patches-applied. add-patch is the non-interactive version of edit-patch. The patch will be incorporated but no editor or subshell will be spawned. AUTHORS
