OS/400 OS kernel bit: 32-bit or 64 bit?

We have following boxes. What are their OS kernel bit: 32 or 64 bit?

IBM AS/400e (iSeries 400 Server) with a 170 processor : OS/400 V4R5
IBM AS/400e (iSeries 400 Server) with a 270 Processor : OS/400 V5R1

The OS Kernel, if OS/400 is installed is fully 128 bit compliant, even if the processor is only 64 bit. DB2 UDB (the underlying database) is 64 bit with 128 bit in the wings.
