Warning for 11.2.0.2.2 patchset update

FYI for 11.2.0.2.2 patchset update ... ( noted in 1291879.1 ).

So this patchset update has just rolled out and they are already
recommending a patch on top of the patchset update. As far as I know
the patchset updates are supposed to have already been subjected to
rigorous and extensive QA testing and verification ...

1.1 Patch 12431716 Is a Recommended Patch for 11.2.0.2.2

Patch Patch 12431716 is a recommended patch for Database PSU
11.2.0.2.2 installations and Oracle strongly recommends that the patch
be installed. The readme for the PSU 11.2.0.2.2 Patch 11724916 has
also been updated to indicate the same.

  1. The big fix in 11.2.0.2 (database) is improvements to the mutex system for high concurrency systems.

    The 11.2.0.2.2 PSU had a regression - at a guess, probably timing issue maybe means the mutex fix missed the code cut-off or something like that.

    Thus 12431716 reinstates the mutex fix.
