Kindle update makes a lot of effort to do everything in a sandbox and when it's sure new files are fine it copies them. But free space check is not one of them.
Loop-mounted fs is much safer and can be prepared in advance. One drawback is that if you have more tools there (e.g. gcc), you have to symlink many /opt subdirectories.
