Ooh, ok, the comments now helped me understand what's exactly going on
in there.

I played with it a bit more and the idea of using trigrams to do LIKE
searches is quite clever.

Unfortunately, I think there's a problem with case insensitive queries:

create table test(t text);
insert into test values ('abcdef');
create index trgm_idx_gin on test using gin (t gin_trgm_ops);
set enable_seqscan to off; -- force index usage
select * from test where t ilike '%BCD%';
-- no results!
set enable_seqscan to on; -- do not use the index
select * from test where t ilike '%BCD%';
-- the row is returned

I saw that the code tries to handle ILIKE searches, but apparently it's
failing somewhere.

I'm sorry but I'm leaving on vacation for the next week and won't be
able to continue reviewing your patch, I'll unset myself as its
reviewer, and in the meantime I hope someone else will pick it up, as
the functionality seems very interesting.
