Where to keep data?

I have few quiet large arrays of precomputed values (8*256*8B + 10*8B = over 16kB) that I keep in __constant address space. All values are of ulong type and are used by all work-items (because actually I have no idea how to split their task for more than one work-item :/). Is __constant the best place to put those values?

 

Next question - AFAIR on HD4850 __local address space is emulated from __global so it won't be any faster?
