The thinkpad BIOS supports hardware encryption, but it only prompts
for passwords on SATA-attached drives. It does not find USB-attached
HDDs that have hardware encryption, and does not prompt for a
password. How can these drives be mounted?

There is a TPM project called "trousers", but the documentation is
vague. Can trousers be used to mount a USB-attached
hardware-encrypted device?
