There are also followup posts saying it worked for others too. If anybody tries this, please report back with your results. Thanks.
EDIT: I just installed it. You have to select an Atmel microprocessor device from the list when you install it. Perhaps we need to modify a .inf file before or after installation, modified to support the Kindle USB VID/PID number.
Crap! The inf file is signed too, so changing the VID/PID to match the kindle makes it UNSIGNED. Bummer.
This only works with already included devices with matching USB VID/PID (ATmega devices). Oh well... It was worth a try.
EDIT: Would it be unreasonable to have end users install a test certificate that I created and signed this with after modifying the .inf file? If okay, here are the instructions for creating and using a test certificate:

I do not have time to study this further at this time. If somebody wishes to continue this investigation, please post your results here. Thanks.
