I don't know how sensitive BusyBox is to a word vs. a byte vs. a bit for data. 
Negative values of range_start could also be used as a positive boolean,
instead of the smallint range_req I've proposed.

To summarize:
if a range is requested and the Range: header is reasonable, set range_start to
requested value | ~MAX_INT (sets high bit)

range_start == 0 => no byte range requested or served
range_start != 0 => serve a byte range starting from (range_start ^ ~MAX_INT)

I don't know if BusyBox httpd has been tested or is expected to work with > 2GB
files, though.
