When I first ssh to a system, I am asked for the password to unlock

subsequent ssh sessions will not prompt for a password. I can always

runs sshfs to mount a remote directory, I want to re-lock that key
file _unless_ it was already unlocked, i.e., if I sshfs asks for a
password, I want to re-lock the key file immediately after the command
Look at ssh-add -T <pubkey-file>. This will test if the private key for
the given public key is available through the agent.
How can I determine ahead of time whether the key file is already
unlocked? In the past (Centos 6) I could examine the output from
"ssh-add -l" determine that. Now, "ssh-add -l" just shows the public
key whether of not the private key has been unlocked. There is also no
apparent way to see whether or not sshfs asked for a password.
