Sure:

- Use 'lsusb' to determine the bus and device. Example listing looks like:

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0781:5151 SanDisk Corp. Cruzer Micro 256/512MB
Flash Drive

- Put hostdev xml in a file:

cat << __EOF__ > usb.xml
    <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='usb'>
      <source>
        <address bus='1' device='6'/>
      </source>
    </hostdev>
__EOF__

- Run 'virsh attach-device {VMNAME} usb.xml' on a running VM.

Hope that helps,
Cole
