Now, I've never seen this 'whitehole' thing. I suspect it has
something to do with the DC390F.

Nope, it's a virtual networking interface used by the routing code
when a route to a destination goes down and there are a few packets
left queued to there, in such a situation the whitehole device becomes
the destination.
