If the DIMM is in the in the unlocked state the kernel should already
have the old passphrase cached, right? Could we just have the kernel
fail ->change_key() requests if the kernel does not already have a
valid old passphrase?

It does mean we can't support going from the locked state directly to
changing the password, but I would expect requiring an initial unlock
is fine.
