sendfile() only works for plain HTTP. For technical reasons it does not work for HTTPS (*). These days majority of services use HTTPS. Therefore the usefulness of sendfile() patch is minimal.

(*) It is possible to use sendfile() for TLS connections, but the feature requires a Kernel module that provides kTLS offloading feature, . In user space it requires OpenSSL 3.0.0 with kTLS support. 3.0.0 is currently under development.
