Bash hashes once and then does not search. This should
prevent unwanted mounts and still do wanted ones.

I also assume you are talking about mapping and mount, 
not just mounting of already mapped (i.e. decrypted) 
devices. The latter could be done with the standard 
kernel automounter. But I think it has no hooks, so
something else would be neded here.
