If no cpu's are running, what could print a message about the first one being initialized?

The messages that dmesg displays are from a buffer in the kernel. They get there by calling the kernel routine "printf". Your cpu 0 was the guy who wrote those messages. But first it had to locate the boot device, load the kernel into core and start it running.
