Doh! You're right. Here's Kay's patch ported to the new interface, and

kevent: add block mount and umount support

Send notification over the new netlink socket to let userspace know that
the filesystem code claims/releases the superblock on an blockdevice.
This way, userspace can get rid of constantly polling /proc/mounts to
watch for filesystem changes.
