There is a table that documents the ath79 status in the OpenWrt forum:

The place to put this into the wiki would be:

We can define a new target "ar71xx-ath79" for the dataentries, which would then give us these 3 options:

1) "ar71xx"          # device is ar71xx only
2) "ath79"           # device is ath79 only 
3) "ar71xx-ath79"    # device is migrated (and working, if nothing in "Unsupported Functions")

---> devices will automatically show up on the ath79 and/or ar71xx wikipage (slight modifications necessary).

For "ath79 WIP" devices, we can set the "Unsupported Functions" datafield (that's where WIP usually is found) to "ath79 WIP, see forum".
Any detailed discussion or description of incomplete support should happen elsewhere, i.e. either in the forum or on the respective devicepages.

Please let me know if this meets your requirements.
