I checked the -i option. It is giving me changelists which go beyond what was
merged during the last merge. Taking the example below:

p4 changes -i //...@=4315

Change 4315 on 2017/03/29 by ... post merge CL
Change 4313 on 2017/03/29 by ... source branch CL
Change 4312 on 2017/03/29 by ... source branch CL
Change 4311 on 2017/03/29 by ... source branch CL
Change 4310 on 2017/03/29 by ... source branch CL
Change 4309 on 2017/03/29 by ... source branch CL
Change 4308 on 2017/03/29 by ... older change on files falling under @=4315
Change 4050 on 2017/02/08 by ... older change on files falling under @=4315
Change 4044 on 2017/02/08 by ... older change on files falling under @=4315
Change 684 on 2016/06/14 by ... older change on files falling under @=4315
Change 494 on 2016/04/26 by ... older change on files falling under @=4315
Change 493 on 2016/04/26 by ... older change on files falling under @=4315
Change 395 on 2016/04/24 by ... older change on files falling under @=4315

Before the merge, when I ran interchanges, I got the list of CLs 4309-4313
above. Which means, these are the exact CL's I need to identify post the
merge. Running p4 changes -i goes back longer in time and seems to be basically
giving me an CL which had impacted this file list, not necessarily the ones
which contributed towards creation of the post-merge changelist.
