Well, but if EnableSendfile is configured in the main config
or vhost we get the setting by looking at the core_module config.
Of course you are right that this doesn't work when it is defined
inside a Location or Directory section.

We could just add a note to the mod_disk_cache configuration that
EnableSendfile will only be taken into account when configured
globally for the server or vhost. IMHO that's good enough for
such a special case. I would like to avoid a dedicated sendfile
directive just for mod_disk_cache.
