How to monitor for new mounts on Linux (without polling)

When I was googling for this it was quite to hard to find so I thought I'd share. /proc/mounts doesn't publish a stream of events or something like that, the trick is to put the file in the "exceptfds" field. A "special exception" is triggered when it's updated and you can read it from scratch.
