It is just two separate lines getting mixed together.
One of them is "SMP: AP CPU #1 Launched!", i.e.
the second CPU/core was just started and it wrote a message
to the console announcing that at the same time as the first
CPU wrote "da1: <COMPAQ RAID ADGVOLUME expa> Fixed Direct Access SCSI-5 device"
to the console.
