Missed upgrade instructions regarding bspatch

I was lazy and didn't notice the instructions for upgrading from 10.3-RELEASE to 11.0-RELEASE. The very first step says to run this as root:
: > /usr/bin/bspatch
I don't know what that does exactly except it relates to patching. My workstation upgraded just fine but I don't know what problems I may have, if any, or if I should run it now.
