Everything started out when I've followed this:
Following that I've already bumped at and nfs-utils is pending after
upstreaming all patches.
I've update it during last 6 months, but only few days ago I've realized

reason of udisks interest(it was listed there).
Basically I was trying to find something for Buildroot.
