Doesn't this driver duplicate some of the existing devices we already
support with the current in-kernel driver? If so, why not just add the
new device support to the existing driver instead of duplicating

This is going to cause a big problem for distros as they will not know
which to enable, so they will probably just disable this one, which is
what I don't think you want to have happen :(
