After reading this answer I recollect that now checkpointing is done at the block level (fast start checkpointing). Is the RBA address the last block used for checkpointing?

I would be thankful to you if you kindly explain this below line in detain or with EXAMPLE.
"Given a checkpoint RBA, DBWR writes buffers from the head of the queue until the low RBA of the buffer at the head of the checkpoint queue is greater than the checkpoint RBA."

let me just rephrase.
It is as straight forward as it looks in this case, don't over analyze it. Pretend the checkpoint rba is a "time". dbwr flushed out blocks to disk older than that time.
