I am not sure what is your meaning for the first packet. I suppose it is the
first router query. the route query is sent when the packet come and no
route for it, it will triger the query.

acutally, it is depend on the protocol, schedluar.h/cc use to schedule the
packet and let it be procceed sequencely. such as the packet is outgoing
packet, after DSR , it will goes to ip stack. check the ns by example for
some detail answer.

I think trace is use to debug and print out the info step by step.

that is feature of DSR, when it initailate a new route query, it will
regiester the query in the requestable. check the intenet draft for dsr for
detail about how to use requesttable.

not sure what is your question. IP header just the IP header for the packet?
hope it will help you out a little bit.
