So, any native speakers with a good suggestion how the text should read
out there?

"Using not-stepping-specific cpu ops" sounds odd.

"Using default cpu ops" is about as wrong as "Using generic cpu ops"
because they're neither generic nor default.

Maybe this?

printk(BIOS_DEBUG, "CPU: Using CPU ops for family %02x, model %02x
(ignoring stepping %02x)\n",
                c.x86, c.x86_model, c.x86_mask);

Or we just remove the message all together.

I'll gladly ack a patch.
