    mount -t crypto /obscure /mnt/crypto&&(sleep $CRYPTO_TIMEOUT ;umount /mnt/crypto)

    The above can be done automagically by an updated mount program or a wrapper
    around mount (or set an at job, if at is installed and running). Getting it
    to automagically unmount after a certain period of _non-use_, however, would
    require support from the driver...which one might even put into user space
    (just to get it out of the kernel) if you can loop mount a named pipe...
