Nope. Not the cable. Since it doesn't seem to be the kernel, I am at
loss how to file a bug report.
The fact that you get no indication (via dmesg) of plugging/unplugging
indicates a likely hardware problem. If it's not the cable then perhaps
the connector on the Kindle or the socket on the computer is dodgy or
loose. Does the Kindle connect to other computers? Does the USB port
work with other devices? Are you using a USB hub?
