I use VirtualBox, and its USB device passthrough works great. The USB port does not even reset when swapping the USB device in and out of the VM, so my kindle stays in fastboot mode even when using MfgTool in the windows VM, and then disconnecting it from the VM and using linux fastboot to continue debricking.
