I'd probably create an init script and have it executed for a given
runlevel after the mounts are done.

Some distros have a mechanism to add "user" things to end of
the init process, but if not, just grab an init script and
mod it to do the blockdev commands you need (you could make
it smart so that it does some sort of checking for valid
names, etc.)
