Oracle DB Patch Testing Methodology Question

Hey guys, I need to patch our db's to the latest 10.2.0.4.x patch and we're 
currently on 10.2.0.3.x (where x=CPU patch).

I'm curious how much "testing" time people build in when doing a patch?  
(versus a version upgrade)

I'm thinking that a patch update probably doesn't require as much testing, but 
I'm not sure if I might be mistaken.

Thoughts?
