Yes, it is best way.
My motherboard have 2 controllers. One is all time on Linux, the other one move between both.
Keyboard mouse on the moving one, printer and other device all time on Linux.
If you don't mind spending a few dollars, what I did was basically buy
a PCIe USB port card, then give it exclusive control of the device to
the guest. I can't use it in the host, but I have other USB ports for
the host, so no biggie.
