In short, Torvalds, and many other programmers see security experts as getting in the way of creating productive code.
That's a perversion of the explanation Torvalds give prior to that drivel of a "conclusion". Filling a security-hole is often a sign of a bug, and mitigating the hole isn't enough - one has to adress the bug. That doesn't mean that we prefer "creative" code, quite the contrary.

Also love how they shift the problem to the developer, repeating we are expected to be knowledgeable about security. Well, most of us are.

Another problem is it seems many companies don't take security seriously enough.
What they're saying is that most companies don't want to put money into security, because it is seen as a cost that needs to be cut.
