An Amiga should (at least theoretically) run with an
kernel and the configuration you get with amiga_defconfig.

The same goes for all other platforms you mention.

There is a window between support for a platform being developed and it
entering the main kernel tree, but that should only be a short window.

And in case a platform support stays long-term only in an external tree
that's nothing that requires documentation - that's a problem that
should be fixed.

BTW: Please correct the time setting on your computer.
