RCN u-boot BBB 0002 patch

The BBB has an expansion connectors where cape board(s) can be installed. My custom board design is based upon BBB. However I don’t have expansion connectors. I am not using any capes boards.
Are there any benefits of applying the 0002- patch if I don’t plan on using a cape board?

Thank you,

Nope, that patch is self contained, you don’t need to apply it in your case.
