I could compile and boot 2.1.112 on my Alpha LX164 system.
System is based on Mr.Kazushige Goto's <>
compiled japanese environment.
Using gcc 2.8.1, without SMP, without fb, without scsi, with ide,
with tulip, with proc_fs(and sysctrl), change '#if 1' in irq.c
line #1006 to '#if 0' for avoiding reboot time error message
caused by tulip.
I ran about 2 hours right now but has no problem at this point.
Long future, sorry, I don't know....;)

If you need more detailed environment etc. please ask me.
