There is no facility to watch individual block devices, and there will
probably never be such a thing in systemd.

Systemd, as the very last step at system reboot/shutdown tries to
stop/disassemle/unmount all active mounts/mapper/loop/... devices, but
that works only for simple storage setups and has no hooks for other
