Is there any changes in API blk_queue_virt_boundary? I could not find
relevant code which account for this. Can you help ?
Which git repo shall I use for testing ? That way I can confirm, I didn't
miss relevant changes.

From your above explanation, it means (after this patch) max segment size
of the MR controller will be set to 4K.
Earlier it is possible to receive single SGE of 64K datalength (Since max
seg size was 64K), but now the same buffer will reach the driver having 16
SGEs (Each SGE will contain 4K length).
Right ?
