This is clearly an OpenVZ feature extensions. It would be nice if vzctl can handle to mount block devices.

I suggest to contact the OpenVZ and request those feature. Last time 'kir' responded that he is not
particularly interested because there customers do not need that feature.

How large is you patch? If you send the patch we can see how complex/intrusive it is ;-)
