Linus is not exactly famous for his ability to understand security
concepts. I find the fact your argument is produced by google and
cut/paste rather than technical material ... enlightening

But hey if Linus jumped down a volcano would you follow ?

There *are* cases where you want SELinux off - isolated high performance
computing clusters for example where you want the absolute minimal
overhead but they also usually turn off other junk Fedora inflicts on
people by default which is far more pointless - like LVM (unless you are
doing crypted fs stuff)
