It says "generic" and "good" - not even "default" nor anything else
that might suggest a failure to me. :)

As could be expected from the code, that message is printed after the
CPU is known when disregarding stepping.

$ grep -rn 'Using generic cpu ops' .|grep -v '/\.svn/'
./arch/i386/lib/cpu.c:253:              printk(BIOS_DEBUG, "Using generic cpu ops (good)\n");
