As long as you have HTTP/2 enabled, it hardly make sense to
optimize things for anything but HTTP/2, since most of the clients
will use HTTP/2 anyway.

If you really do care, a readily available solution might be to
rewrite to a different location with sendfile enabled. For
example:

server {
listen 443 ssl http2;

location / {
if ($server_protocol != 'HTTP/2.0') {
rewrite ^(.*) /sendfile$1 last;
}

sendfile off;
}

location /sendfile/ {
alias html/;
sendfile on;
}
}

I don't think it worth the effort though.

Alternatively, a dedicated HTTP/1.x-only server for large
downloads with sendfile enabled might be the way to go. This
will ensure that kernel TLS and SSL_sendfile() can be effectively
used for all clients.
