The text of the allA-upaniSad is also reproduced in
Un-published Upanishads / ed by the Pandits of Adyar
Library under the supervision of C. Kunhan Raja. - [Adyar,
Madras] : Adyar Library, 1933 (Adyar Library Series ; No.
14), p. 392-393
The text does not give references to manuscripts or
variant readings, so it is not what I would call a
critical edition. By the way, here this Upanishad belongs
to the group of Shakta-Upanishads.
In 1996, a question concerning this text already came up
here in this mailing list. I pointed to a manuscript
catalogue of F. O. Schrader who made a few remarks on the
Alla(h)-Upanishad, see http://tinyurl.com/ybvq6t
For whatever it is worth, Google Books
(http://books.google.com) gives some references if you
look for "Allah Upanishad".
Hope it helps
