  According to Sun , there is no "easy" way to do this.

1) You have to go into your /tmp/2.5.1_Recommended directory, then cd into
each patch, and run the backoutpatch <patch_id> script file.

2) Some people thought the install_cluster would do this - NO - it does not.
 3) One person said to run a :

        foreach dir (`ls -l !* | grep "^d"`)
        ? cd $dir
        ? ./backoutpatch (I think this is right...)
        ? cd ..
        ? end
  The does not work, because backoutpatch requires a patch ID.

  I copied the install_cluster script to backout_cluster, then modifyed it.
It reads the patch_order, and stores it, then cd's to the patch directory,
then runs the backoutpatch instead of the installpatch script, using the
  Pretty simple - It seemed to work.
