Do not be too fast to answer this question, I need some time to set up the network tap and record stuff to confirm the above guesses.
I have no idea

I didn't write any part of the usbnetwork stuff, I'm only using it. usbnetwork is yifanlu's and NiLuJe's beast.

But I don't think (speculation!) that the Kindle tries to request a DHCP address.

For me (Ubuntu), it's actually the opposite: my laptop detects a new network connection and tries to autoconfigure itself. I have simply defined a profile matching the usb0 MAC address, which sets the laptop's IP address to the required value. So while it tries to autoconfigure, I just select that profile.
