You can not have multiple values in a single sysfs file. sysfs is "one
value per file". This needs to be individual files, if you really need
this. And never a "header" for a sysfs file, that's never something
that should ever be in a sysfs file.

And finally, you need a Documentation/ABI/ update for any sysfs file
changes.
