Built a custom 2.6.27 kernel on a 164LX system with Alphabios and it works withouit any problems but unfortunately it seems that a kernel >= 2.6.23

What is the reason for the problem and any chance to fix it in the future

Second guessing that the problem (which you notably don't report) is that the kernel fails to even start booting properly when booting with aboot I suggest that you haven't updated aboot on your boot disk to the newest

Well, no, it looks to me like he has to use MILO, as he mentions a
164LX with AlphaBIOS and a 164UX which only has ARCSBIOS.

Fair enough. Obviously a better description of the problem is required from the initial reporter.
