Actually you'll need to 'dd' the end of the disk since it's labels 2 and 3 that are still visible to the system. I would start by dd-ing the last mega or so of the p0 device.

Good luck,

I would verify that you can no longer see the disk by using the 'zdb' command below. Once you're satisfied then you can re-attach it your mirror.
