NAME         top

       delpart - tell the kernel to forget about a partition

SYNOPSIS         top

       delpart device partition

DESCRIPTION         top

       delpart asks the Linux kernel to forget about the specified
       partition (a number) on the specified device. The command is a
       simple wrapper around the "del partition" ioctl.

       This command doesn’t manipulate partitions on a block device.
