  2. If needed, migrate any data from this device to another device
    # pvmove /dev/<source device> /dev/<target device>
  3. If needed, remove any LVM configuration from the device
    # vgreduce <volume group> /dev/<device>
    # pvremove /dev/<device>
  4. Flush any outstanding IO operations
    # blockdev --flushbuf /dev/<device>
