Here's an update. I never lost control of the machine, so after about 24
hours I decided to try to fix it without the use of the Big Red
Switch. There were still > 1000 connections showing, and pstools were
unresponsive, so I did:

ls /proc > killscript
added "kill -9" to the beginning and "\" to the end of each line,
ran it as the database user. It worked pretty well. After about 5
minutes it killed all of the oracle processes and the machine appeared to
have returned to normal. I've since installed Oracle 81610 and everything
looks good.
