Solaris Cluster Patches & Oracle Executable

Good morning all,  

I boldly applied the latest cluster patch to one of my little blade servers. However, I don't see anything on Metalink that states you must relink the executable after patching the OS.  

This seems like the logical next step, but since I didn't see it anywhere (and relinking can prove to be problematic), I decided to let it go and start up the database. It's only my test database, after all. My next step is to cluster patch one of my database servers that runs ASM. This action was suggested by Oracle Support. ASM makes me nervous because it's crashed multiple times and left no clues as to why. If a relink is required, and it's not done, it seems to me the first thing that will crash is ASM. (ASM crashes are spectacular!)  

Comments, anyone? Also, if I've missed this in the documentation somewhere, a link to anything discussing this topic would be greatly appreciated.  

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
