I suspect you'll have to look into HAL for that.
{storage,volume}.policy.mount_option.* is where I'd look first:

The spec can be reached through .
I found useful

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

Am I being overly harsh or do others think that the multi-thousand bit

DES? Not big enough! Triple DES? Not big enough! IDEA? Not big enough!
What you need is Dr.  Phineas P. Snakeoil's mystery elixir! Filled
with matrices and Galois fields to improve the digestion of dyspeptic
managers everywhere! Step right up and get a whole case full! Don't
ask what's inside ladies and gentlemen! It's a patent medicine that is
only available here.
