I understand why you have made this change but it's a substantial change
which should at least be documented in the changelog (I'd expect to see
some mention of how this is supposed to be configured, for example).
I'd also expect something to handle the existing user.

Like I said, I'm not entirely sure that you're supposed to be using this
driver if you want a machine driver: this is a machine driver and I'm
not sure if it's supposed to cover all cases or not.  Grant?
