[Openstack] More than one compute_driver in nova.conf

I was wondering how to handle changing the compute_driver in nova.conf? I currently have the default

compute_driver = libvirt.LibvirtDriver


I want to be able to add the driver for baremetal provisioning, but I am unclear on how to do this.
Can there be more than one compute_driver or do I have to replace compute_driver = libvirt.LibvirtDriver with the new driver.

If I can only replace what will happen to my existing KVM and nova operations? 
Also, I am just using the bearmetal driver as an example. This same question can be applied to any other feature that requires a different compute_driver.

Thank you!
