    If the build number is the same then should not be any issues.

    The iOS 5 GM you have installed is exactly the same build as what is to be released tomorrow. That's why it's called "Gold Master".

    So no, there's no need to restore your iPhone.

    Not always. There has been some instances where the GM build released in beta was off from the actual release. Example was Lion. The GM had a different number than release. Updates corrected that on day 1.

    I beleive 4.0 beta had multiple GM builds before public.
