Yep. The only way you can get Postfix to send IP to Dovecot is by
patching Postfix sources.

Do you mean all users must connect from only specific IP, or is it a
per-user configuration? If all users, maybe you can do this on Postfix
side some other way. Or require clients to use submission port or a
different IP and use a firewall.
