Thank you for your quick reply.
Mainline kernel build is going on BBB with omap2plus_defconfig.
There is another option, to use repo,
https://github.com/beagleboard/linux
with bb.org_defconfig

It is always possible to configure kernel as required.
Leave issue of defconfig behind.
Mainly I am worried about patches not in upstream/mainline kernel.

I'm going to compare above repository and mainline kernel source.
