Does Cyrus benefit greatly from increased FS buffer cache?

I wonder if ext3 behaves differently, Red Hat's 32-bit behaves differently,
or if something altogether different is going on. We are currently running
RHEL 3 in 32-bit mode, our servers have 16 GB, and most of it is used for
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 16214344 16197612 16732 0 86944 13415172
-/+ buffers/cache: 2695496 13518848
Swap: 4192944 8436 4184508
So it would seem that a 64-bit kernel wouldn't improve on that, right? Or
is that a difference between 2.4 and 2.6?
