You're contradicting yourself: by using S2API, the userspace API won't be using a single structure, since S2API will break them into pairs of attributes/values. Nothing limits that the in-kernel API will group those values into a struct, but the internal API should be smart enough to not return to userspace the values that weren't requested by the call.
