I believe this patch deals with kernel buffers, not any kind of direct
access to the MTD, so the question (which is not stupid IMO) should be
regarding CPU architectures. And my educated guess is that 64-bit
access should not be any slower. I do know that 8-bit access *is*
slower for some relevant architectures.
