Your reply permits a possible misinterpretation, so I'll emphasize
the addressing limititation is "per process". (Unless there's some
architectural tricks I've not explored.)  With the memory management
in the kernel, processes can be spread out over lots more than the
4 GiB you may be referring to. The remaining issue is then "Does
this one process require more than 4 GiB of memory?" If the answer
is "no", adding more memory will help performance (although it
won't deal with program failues due to other reasons).
