In a mood for some experimenting I've rebuilt kernel 2040 sources but 
with (inside config.b/config.bat) :
"SET XUPX==upx --ultra-brute --8086 --lzma"


The process seems to finish with succes, resulting in a 43KB kernel 
instead of a 45KB one, but the resulting kernel isn't bootable. Without 
the --lzma parameter it does boot.

Are any specific changes needed to support UPX's LZMA compression method 
in addition to UCL and NRV? Perhaps only the EXEFLAT part?

(for that matter, any other compressors supported, like APACK?)
