Is fastboot just a utility that flashes the kindle, like dd in linux?
Kind of. It can flash memory blocks and read and write "variables", like bootmode or serial.

As you say you are experienced linux user, I believe you will figure out what to do from this thread (including way how to load SSH diags image):

Using this doesn't do anything to the Kindle (at least from what I can tell).
There is nothing change on display, when Kindle is in fastboot mode, but it works.
Also don't forget to run fastboot tool under sudo.
