    Remove sendfile support
    pysendfile[1] was added as an optional dependency but the library
    hasn't been maintained and has got no release since 2014.
    What is worse, the sendfile implementation is not actually working
    since The SendFileIterator class was removed[2]. (Follow-up[3] removed
    the remaining reference to the class). The broken implementation has
    not been detected because the client is not currently used to upload
    Remove the incomplete implementation to get rid of the dependency on
    the unmaintained library.

  pysendfile library is unmaintained

Status in Glance:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The pysendfile library[1] was added as an optimal dependency for zero-
  copy image upload[2] but the library got no release for 10 years.

  We should consider replacing it by os.sendfile or removing the feature
  instead of using the unmaintained library.
