Why would it require an API change?  The entire point of the TDE HW
library is to abstract low level calls; simple calls to the udisks/udisks2
mount/unmount commands can be easily added (with fallback to pmount if
they do not succeed).  See the eject routine for an example of how to do
this properly with CMake conditionals and fallback support.
