Destroy a zpool which has a vdev with missing labels.

The zpool status -xv shows the vdev is UNAVAIL due to missing labels:

# zpool status -xv
 pool: mypool
state: UNAVAIL
status: One or more devices could not be used because the label is missing or invalid.
There are insufficient replicas for the pool to continue functioning.
