Hello,I unfortunately don't have experience with git lfs.
I'm thinking about the subpath argument to SRC_URI git fetcher.

So maybe by giving the path to the file you'll be able to get it without
the whole repo. Provided you're able to get those files with git pull
and not git lfs.
The other thing could be to use a do_fetch_append() with the call to git
lfs in there. I think the git used in that task will be the host one, so
you should then have support for git lfs provided you installed it on
the build machine.
Hopefully I'm not answering with complete non-sense, and giving you some
hints on what to test a bit more :)
