You dont need it for sys,proc,etc though.
If you have this problem, you can do
losetup -d /dev/loop/1
for 1-7 to fix the unmounting, without needing to reboot or anything

On mounting the kindle partition (/mnt/us) in debian, I assume you can just do
mount -o bind /mnt/us /mnt/debian/mnt/us
Correct? Im not a real expert with mount, so there might be some problem with that, but its working fine for me so far. If it is correct, it might be good to add it to
Thanks for the "-d" tip!

And yes, you can do that to mount the kindles storage. Im going to add a line next time i update the loader that will mount the kindle on /media so its easy to access

I havent figured out exactly what though.
2. Yes, works with no changes
To leave it running, (incase i pull the usb plug or something) you can
compile 'screen' and run it from the kindle (You can not apt-get screen, it wont work)
