There absolutely should be an OEL patch for this - for the RH kernel they'll
probably take upstream - for UEK I'd expect an Oracle patch. I'd expect
Oracle shops to be regression testing to determine the likely impact on RDBMS
(and java app for that matter) performance.

I was wondering the same thing. But I dont think its up to Oracle to patch
this, its going to be at the OS and firmware level. But everything I read
says that its going be a huge performance hit, anywhere from 10-50%, and the
higher end will be on IO bound systems.

Checked Oracle security bulletins but didn't find anything related. Did
Oracle release an official statement for these vulnerabilities at least for
the RDBMS and OEL.
