This sounds like the perfect setup for the PC side. (In many
cases this would be an MS-Windows PC, though.) I wonder, what is
the complementary NM setup for the embedded devices side?

Is there a connection type in network manager, that first tries
DHCP (dhclient) and after timing out tries local link as second
option? (Not sure, but I believe MS-Windows does it that way.)
