I've been using it on 2 servers for months. While I haven't done proper
testing, it does feel faster than 8.4 which had been on those servers
for at least over a year before.
It seems to depend mostly on your autovacuum settings, since
fastupdate=on will apply the updated index only during a vacuum, or when
the list has grown larger than work_mem.
9.0 did add the following:
"Use red-black binary trees for GIN index creation (Teodor Sigaev)
Red-black trees are self-balancing. This avoids slowdowns in cases where
the input is in nonrandom order."
