So what's the correct thing to do, inst2pkg is supposed to return the phandle to sd, even though the device was interposed?
That's correct. The interposition spec http://www.openbios.org/data/docs/rec.intpos.d02.pdf says that interpose should be "invisible" to interpose-unaware (e.g., IEEE1275 or existing) clients. The SunOS boot loader doesn't know about interpose, and so expects ihandle>phandle to return the phandle to sd.
It looks like the specified way to query for interposed packages is via "instance-to-interposed-path", whereas the previously specified "instance-to-path" omits any reference to interposed packages for backwards compatibility.
