$entity_type: The entity type of entity, such as 'node' or 'user'.

$entity: The entity on which to operate. The revision to delete is indicated by the entity's revision ID property, as identified by hook_fieldable_info() for $entity_type.

$fields: An array listing the fields to delete. The keys and values of the array are field IDs.
