Why is this difficult? If you get the volume.is_mounted property change the 
device is not away in this case. If you need the mount point options use the 
key block.device instead to identify the volume. Or is there an other 

Btw. I think the patch break the the HAL specifications and the behavior of 
the key/property. If you not set back the mountpoint to empty if the device 
is not in /proc/mounts it would be possible to have old values in this key.
