'clearpart --linux' isn't supported at this point. You have to resort to
using 'clearpart --all' (which actually only clears the first disk at
the moment) or 'clearpart --drives /dev/sda' or whatever. clearpart is
unfortunately a bit tricky to implement on top of partman the way it is

If you actually need to clear just the Linux partitions on a given disk,
I'm afraid you're a bit stuck at the moment.
