Gzip static: ranges support (ticket #2349).

In contrast to on-the-fly gzipping with gzip filter, static gzipped
representation as returned by gzip_static is persistent, and therefore
the same binary representation is available for future requests, making
it possible to use range requests.

Further, if a gzipped representation is re-generated with different
compression settings, it is expected to result in different ETag and
different size reported in the Content-Range header, making it possible
to safely use range requests anyway.

As such, ranges are now allowed for files returned by gzip_static.
