mount helper scripts?

Does mount provide some way to add hooks such that

  mount /foo

can do some work to setup/create the necessary device file before
actually mouting it (the device file contains an ext3 partition).

I'm thinking of an fstab entry like

  /dev/bar  /foo     ext3     noexec,prehook=/sbin/makebar

In my case /dev/bar is really an LVM volume that needs to be activated
(it's on a USB drive) before the corresponding device can be used.
